Malignant lymphomas commonly involve the kidneys (1), occurring on histological examination in approximately one half of the cases studied (2-5).

Even more rarely uremia is responsible for the presenting symptoms of a lymphomatous disease (12). Renal functional impairment may occur via three mechanisms:  Diffuse infiltration of the kidneys (6-12);  bilateral ureteral obstruction secondary to nodal or retroperitoneal involvement (5, 10, 11, 13) or to associated periureteral
