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]

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.

Conclusion Le cancer rénal dans notre population était une pathologie de sujets âgés, avec une prédominance masculine et symptomatologie polymorphe. Le carcinome rénal à cellules claires était le type histologique le plus fréquent avec dominance des stades T3, T2 et des grades II et III. Objectives The main aim was to conduct a retrospective epidemiological study to determine the histoclinical, pathological and therapeutic characteristics of kidney cancers in western Algeria. Patients and methods Retrospective epidemiological study including 115 cases of kidney ...

We report a rare case of testicular metastasis from RCC. A 69-year-old patient presented with discomfort and pain in his left testis. He had undergone laparoscopic left radical nephrectomy at another institution. Scrotal ultrasonography revealed a non-palpable lesion at the upper pole of the left testis with hypoechoic aspect, highly suspicious for malignancy. We performed a left inguinal orchiectomy. The testicular lesion was diagnosed as a metastasis from RCC. After orchiectomy, a computed tomography of the chest and abdomen revealed no other metastatic lesions. The patient remains free of clinical recurrence after 20 mo...

Conclusion: Sunitinib treatment was active in the majority of patients, especially those with low and intermediate risk by MSKCC score, with manageable toxicity. Survival rates were inferior in this non-screened population with mRCC treated in the SUS.

CONCLUSIONS: Pancreatic metastases from renal cancer are very rare, and are usually diagnosed in the monitoring the primary cancer (because most of them are asymptomatic). The treatment for isolated resectable pancreatic metastases without extra-pancreatic extension is surgical resection. PMID: 27417704 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
