  • Chromophobe renal cell carcinoma (chRCC) and renal oncocytoma are two distinct but closely related entities with strong morphologic and genetic similarities.

  • While chRCC is a malignant tumor, oncocytoma is usually regarded as a benign entity.

    BioMed Central - Latest articles

  • A cytogenetic alteration, loss of chromosome 1p, common to renal oncocytoma and chRCC has been identified, providing the opportunities for identifying novel tumor suppressor genes and we have identified a series of immunohistochemical markers that are clinically useful in discriminating chRCC and oncocytoma.

    BioMed Central - Latest articles

  • Previous studies have been relatively limited in terms of examining the differences between oncocytoma and chromophobe RCC.

    BioMed Central - Latest articles

  • The overlapping characteristics are best explained by a common cellular origin, and the biologic differences between chRCC and oncocytoma are therefore of considerable interest in terms of carcinogenesis, diagnosis and clinical management.

    BioMed Central - Latest articles

  • Gene expression profiles, high-throughput SNP genotyping, and pathway analysis effectively distinguish chRCC from oncocytoma.

    BioMed Central - Latest articles

  • It is well worth remarking, that renal oncocytoma overlap with other renal neoplasms, therefore nephrectomy remains the treatment of choice.

    BioMed Central - Latest articles

  • Renal angiomyolipoma and oncocytoma are uncommon neoplasms and their simultaneous presence in the same kidney is rare.

    BioMed Central - Latest articles

  • Microscopically, the tumor of the lower pole was found to be an angiomyolipoma, whereas the mid-portion tumor was an oncocytoma.
