Metanephric adenoma (MA) of the kidney is an uncommon benign epithelial tumour that can present at any age. The histology of the lesion is well established, but imaging findings have been described in only a few cases. We report the CT and ultrasound appearance of MA in two females to increase the awareness of this entity among radiologists. Its recognition may facilitate nephron-sparing surgery.
