AIMS To develop an immunohistochemical strategy for distinguishing renal oncocytoma (RO) from the eosinophilic variant of chromophobe (ChRCC), and papillary (PRCC) and clear cell (CRCC) renal cell carcinoma containing eosinophilic cytoplasm in core biopsy specimens. METHODS AND RESULTS Cluster analysis was performed on immunohistochemical data from 21 RO… CONTINUE READING
