Renal artery pseudoaneurysm (RAP) is a rare complication after partial nephrectomy. Here we present a 63-yearold male who had an incidental finding of a right renal cancer, with stage T1bN0M0. The patient underwent a robotassisted laparoscopic partial nephrectomy and presented with a giant RAP since one month after the operation. He was successfully treated by an angiography with selective embolization.
