Abstract: A 24-year-old man had unilateral gross hematuria that required nephrectomy. Pathological examination revealed massive intratubular hemorrhage and frequent deposition of an amorphous and homogeneous material positive for periodic acid, Schiff stain in the corticomedullary junction. This substance had the characteristics of Tamm-Horsfall protein and frequently herniated into the lumen of thin-walled veins of arcuate size. There was no apparent cause for the bleeding. To the best of our knowledge this is the third reported case with these peculiar findings and no apparent cause. We discuss some hypotheses as to the etiopathogenesis of this rare and intriguing condition.
