Renal cell carcinoma
They are best characterized using the Bosniak criteria to assess risk of harboring a malignancy.
They rarely require treatment.
They are the most common benign renal lesions found in the kidney.
They can harbor internal septa, calcifications, and internal debris and still be considered benign according to the Bosniak classification.
They are best imaged using ultrasound to allow classification using the Bosniak criteria.
They are most common in young females.
They can be high grade or low grade, as long as they are less than 3 cm.
They are usually of clear cell histology but can also be found with chromophobe and papillary cells as well.
Recent studies suggest that renal adenoma may be a premalignant precursor of papillary renal cell carcinoma (RCC).
There is uniform agreement regarding the clinical and pathologic classification of renal adenoma.
can be made primarily on the basis of histologic criteria.
is commonly made at autopsy.
requires specific immunohistochemical staining.
can be confirmed by electron microscopy.
can be rendered only if tumor size is less than 1.0 cm.
Renal exploration, partial nephrectomy with intraoperative frozen section analysis of histology (if malignant, a radical nephrectomy)
A radical nephrectomy without adrenalectomy
A radical nephrectomy with adrenalectomy
Renal exploration with biopsy and intraoperative frozen section analysis determining radical versus partial nephrectomy
laparoscopic exposure and renal cryoablation.
They are malignant 2% to 5% of the time.
They are characterized by bimodal age distribution.
They are complex cystic lesions that are typically classified as Bosniak II.
They are more common in men than in women.
They are readily differentiated from RCC on the basis of appropriate imaging studies.
