Anastomosing hemangiomas are rare benign vascular lesions with predilections for the genitourinary tract. We present a case of bilateral renal tumors detected during pretransplant evaluation and underwent laparoscopic bilateral radical nephrectomy. Histological diagnosis was anastomosing hemangioma confirmed with immunohistochemistry. As the final diagnosis was of benign nature, the patient was maintained on the transplant waitlist. As both renal cell carcinoma and renal anastomosing hemangioma have predilection for end-stage renal disease with no radiological differentiating features, the accurate histopathological examination with immunohistochemistry is essential for the diagnosis.
