Renal Cortical Cyst 2.0*1.9 cm With Thin Internal SeptationRenal cortical cyst may be the most common type of kidney cyst. The internal septation has great significance to the prognosis of kidney cyst. 2.0*1.9 cm renal cortical cyst with thin internal septation should draw your concern.

What does renal cyst with thin internal septation mean?

Kidney cyst can be divided into five classes. That is “Bosniak Classification of Renal Cysts”, which include:

1. Class I lesions are simple, benign cysts. The characteristics of a simple cyst include a well-defined and homogeneous mass with a thin, imperceptible wall.

2. Class II lesions are minimally complicated cysts with features that cause concern. Internal septations that are smooth, thin and do not have thickened elements may be considered benign.

Class IIF lesions are more suspicious cysts. These lesions are minimally complicated cysts but may be hyperdense, may contain more calcium in the wall, or may have thicker internal septations. Follow up scanning is recommended.

3. Class III lesions are more complicated cystic structures that often show irregular and thickened septa, wall thickening, solid non-enhancing mural nodules, or irregular calcifications. This category also includes multiloculated cysts. These lesions require surgical exploration.

4. Class IV lesions show non-uniform wall thickening, have irregular margins, and/or contain solid components that enhance on CT. These lesions are clearly malignant and total nephrectomy is warranted.
