Spontaneous and post-traumatic renal intracystic hemorrhages are extremely rare, but are a potential danger to patients with cystic kidney disease. We report two cases of post-traumatic intracystic massive hemorrhage in renal cysts. One patient was a 27-year-old male who presented with left flank pain and gross hematuria after slipping on the stairs 2 days previously. The other patient was a 58-year-old male who presented with back pain due to an accident. The circulatory states of the two patients were deteriorated and renal intracystic hemorrhages were detected on computed tomography. One patient underwent a simple nephrectomy and the other patient was treated with arterial embolization. We present two cases of renal intracystic hemorrhage, emphasizing early diagnosis and the treatment of choice.
