<div><p>Primary glomus tumors of the kidney are rare and have never been reported in children under 16 years of age. Tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC) is an extremely variable genetic condition that can affect virtually any organ in the body. Only a single case of glomus tumor associated with TSC was reported in 1964. In this article, we describe the clinical, radiologic, and pathological features of a primary renal glomus tumor in an 8-year-old girl with TSC. This tumor is large, has a deep location, and has infiltrative margins and numerous mitoses. However, there was no disease progression in a 16-month period of follow-up. To our knowledge, this is the second report of primary renal glomus tumor in childhood, the youngest one in the literature.</p></div>
