    Von Hippel-Lindau disease (VHL) is a rare genetic disease with a lifetime risk of clear cell renal cell carcinoma in approximately 70% of cases. We present a case of a 63-year-old man with bilateral, multifocal renal masses. Genetic testing results were consistent with a VHL deletion. The patient had no other disease manifestations consistent with VHL. The patient underwent staged bilateral nephron-sparing procedures. Pathology of all renal masses revealed oncocytoma. To our knowledge, we describe the first reported case of multiple renal oncocytomas in a male patient with a germline VHL mutation.
