Background: Bilateral renal cell carcinoma (RCC) is an extremely rare renal tumor, which even more infrequently presents with two different types of pathology.

Methods: Bilateral RCC is an extremely rare renal tumor, accounting for 3–4% of sporadic RCC. Bilateral and multifocal RCC are usually of a single histological type and infrequently of different types.

Results: Currently, nephron-sparing surgery (NSS) has become the standard for treating bilateral RCC, even for tumors greater than 4 cm. Laparoscopic NSS has developed as a minimally invasive procedure and novel technique for the treatment of RCC.

Conclusions: To our knowledge, this is the first case to date of bilateral RCC treated with simultaneous retroperitoneal laparoscopic nephron-sparing surgery (RLNSS). Here we indicate the feasibility of this management and discuss the advantages and disadvantages of this technique.

Keywords: Renal cell carcinoma (RCC); nephron-sparing surgery (NSS); simultaneous bilateral
