The International Society of Urological Pathology (ISUP) Vancouver Classification of Renal Neoplasia
The classification working group of the International Society of Urological Pathology consensus conference on renal neoplasia was in charge of making recommendations regarding additions and changes to the current World Health Organization Classification of Renal Tumors, with consensus that 5 entities should be recognized as new distinct epithelial tumors within the classification system.
Papillary renal cell carcinoma: a clinicopathologic and immunohistochemical study of 105 tumors.
Papillary renal cell carcinoma is the second most common carcinoma of the renal tubules and has been characterized genetically. Its morphologic features are incompletely characterized. It has been…
The World Health Organization/International Society of Urological Pathology consensus classification of urothelial (transitional cell) neoplasms of the urinary bladder
The aim was to develop a universally acceptable classification system for bladder neoplasia that could be used effectively by pathologists, urologists, and oncologists.
The Heidelberg classification of renal cell tumours
This paper presents the conclusions of a workshop entitled ‘Impact of Molecular Genetics on the Classification of Renal Cell Tumours’, which was held in Heidelberg in October 1996 and is applicable to routine diagnostic practice.
Xp11 Translocation Renal Cell Carcinoma in Adults: Expanded Clinical, Pathologic, and Genetic Spectrum
Although they may be uncommon on a percentage basis, given the vast predominance of RCC in adults compared with children, adult Xp11 translocation RCC may well outnumber their pediatric counterparts.
Clear Cell Papillary Renal Cell Carcinoma: A Distinct Histopathologic and Molecular Genetic Entity
Clear cell papillary renal cell carcinoma can arise in otherwise normal kidneys and in kidneys with end-stage renal disease, and should be considered a distinct entity in the spectrum of renal cell neoplasia.
Understanding pathologic variants of renal cell carcinoma: distilling therapeutic opportunities from biologic complexity.
Classification of renal cell carcinoma
Extensively cystic renal neoplasms: cystic nephroma, cystic partially differentiated nephroblastoma, multilocular cystic renal cell carcinoma, and cystic hamartoma of renal pelvis.
It is concluded that tumors in young children that have been classified as cystic nephroma and cystic partially differentiated nephroblastoma likely represent a single entity, and all should be considered highly cystic Wilms' tumors with little or no capacity for invasion or metastasis.
