Background: We report a 21-year-old male, presenting with erythromelalgia and polycythe-mia. A solid renal mass of the lower pole of the right kidney was discovered. The patient was subjected to a right open partial nephrectomy. The pathological study of the surgical specimen showed a metanephric adenoma of the kidney. The patient had an uneventful postoperative evolution. Currently the patient is in good health without evidence of recurrence of the tumor and normal hematological parameters.
