PURPOSE We analyzed familial renal oncocytoma to provide a foundation for studies aimed at defining genes involved in the pathogenesis of renal oncocytoma. MATERIALS AND METHODS We describe 5 families with multiple members affected with renal oncocytoma. Tumors were analyzed pathologically, and affected and nonaffected members were screened clinically and genetically. RESULTS We identified 12 affected male and 3 affected female (ratio 4:1) individuals in the 5 families. In affected family… Expand
