It is extremely rare that papillary renal cell carcinoma has a massive hemorrhage. We report a case of papillary renal cell carcinoma with a massive hemorrhage which showed hemangioma-like imaging findings such as a globular discontinuous enhancement on the corticomedullary phase with a gradual centripetal fill-in pattern on the excretory phase on computed tomography and heterogeneously hyperintensity on T2-weighted magnetic resonance imaging. We also discuss a plausible mechanism explaining such imaging findings, with reference to pathological findings.
