Major complications of acquired renal cystic disease: W ünderlich syndrome and papilar carcinoma.

CONCLUSIONS: Renal hemorrhage is a serious complication that can lead to a fatal outcome. Patients undergoing dialysis should be monitored actively due to the risk of developing acquired renal cystic disease and associated complications. PMID: 28678013 [PubMed - in process]

Publication date: March 2018 Source:Urology Case Reports, Volume 17 Author(s): Hiroto Matsuda, Satoshi Tamada, Minoru Kato, Akira Yamamoto, Taro Iguchi, Tatsuya Nakatani A 73-year-old woman with chief complaint of macroscopic hematuria was diagnosed as having left renal tumor with pancreatic invasion. Nephrectomy was performed. Pathological diagnosis was clear cell carcinoma, pT3a. Three months after the operation, liver metastasis appeared and sunitinib was started. Most of the liver metastases disappeared; however, a new lesion appeared, and sunitinib was switched to axitinib, which was effective on the residual lesion,...

Renal cell carcinoma most commonly metastasizes to the lungs, skeleton or liver. Metastatic renal cell carcinoma to the breast is very rare, especially for clear cell carcinoma, and few cases regarding this co...

ConclusionsMixed tumor histology is an uncommon entity that is not associated with adverse features in a solitary renal mass. These results are especially relevant in discussing the role of renal mass biopsy, and provide further evidence that renal sampling is a valuable tool in the appropriate clinical context.

CONCLUSION: AXL expression was associated with worse clinical outcome and may be an important prognostic biomarker in sunitinib-treated patients with metastatic renal cell carcinoma. PMID: 28986088 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

1071Objectives: The aim of this paper was to evaluate the prediction of F-18-FDG PET/CT for nuclear grade in renal clear cell carcinoma patients.Methods: A total of sixty-four patients with renal clear cell carcinoma proved by nephrectomy or tissue biopsy in Peking University First Hospital were enrolled in this retrospective study. All the patients didn’t receive any treatments before PET/CT implement. The SUVmax of each patient reflecting the glucose metabolic activity was recorded. The pathologic characteristics including Fuhrman grades and pT stage and tumor diameter were also collected. The SUVmax between differ...

Conclusion: In patients whose urinary excretion of 18F-FLT is disturbed by renal failures, 18F-FLT PET/CT is useful for detection of the primary lesions of urinary tract tumors. Detectability of 18F-FLT PET/CT for the primary and metastatic lesions of urinary tract tumors seems to be high when the tumors have high grade malignancy. Research Support:

AbstractBAP1 is a gene situated on chromosome 3p in a region that can be modified in renal cell carcinomas (RCCs). Mutations that cause loss of expression of BAP1 frequently occur in primary clear cell renal carcinoma (ccRCC). In a previous work, we observed that loss of nuclear BAP1 expression was crucial in ccRCC progression; in the current study, we investigated BAP1 expression in a large series of small conventional ccRCCs treated with partial nephrectomy, to assess a possible role as biomarker and the prognostic value in terms of patients ’ survival at long-term follow-up. One hundred sixty-two patients with sin...

We report a case of a 60-year-old female who presented with multiple inguinal and axillary lymph node enlargements which on excision biopsy showed metastatic RCC. RCC can present with synchronous metastatic deposits in the various organs. RCC can metastasize to some atypical sites as well such as thyroid, orbit, and neck as mentioned earlier in literature. The patient presenting with extra-regional lymph nodes like inguinal and axillary is extremely rare, and so far only one clinical case could be found from India in 2008. A 61-year-old female presented in the emergency department with left flank pain and hematuria. Imagin...

Conclusion: Possibility of unusual metastatic sites of renal cell carcinoma such as rectum indeed exists, which should not be ignored in the surveillance after resection of the primary tumor.
