Renal cell carcinoma (RCC) of the transplanted kidney is rare. In Iran, until 2004, 15000 kidney transplantations were performed, mostly from living donors. We report the first case of renal cell carcinoma in transplanted kidney, four years after transplantation, which was treated with nephron sparing or partial nephrectomy.
