This study presents a case of juxtaglomerular cell tumor (JCT) in a 12-year-old girl with hypertension. Fine needle aspirate (FNA) cytology demonstrated a neoplasm with features of a papillary carcinoma, prompting a right radical nephrectomy. Histological examination revealed solid sheets of round epithelioid cells with eosinophilic granular cytoplasm, and distinct cell borders in a background of widespread hemorrhage. Electron microscopy revealed cytoplasmic renin granules. The differential… Expand
Adult Pleomorphic Juxtaglomerular Cell Tumor.
TLDR
A 40-year-old male with chronic hypertension since his teens presented to the emergency department following a motor vehicle collision and partial nephrectomy revealed a vascular tumor with predominantly monomorphic epithelioid cells arranged in sheets and trabeculae with foci of nuclear pleomorphism.

A Kidney Tumor in an Adolescent with Severe Hypertension and Hypokalemia: An Uncommon Case – Case Report and Review of the Literature on Reninoma
TLDR
Reninoma is an uncommon cause of hypertension in a young adult and should be included in the differential diagnosis as a potential life-threatening and curable condition and conservative surgical management is the gold standard for small, circumscribed lesions. Expand
Lipofuscin-like granules of the juxtaglomerular apparatus of the kidney. The diagnostic significance of a quasi-normal subcellular structure incidentally encountered in the course of routine ultrastructural evaluation of renal biopsies.
TLDR
The pathologist has to be aware of these lipofuscin-like granules in order not to confuse them with the semicircularly organized (fingerprint) linear immune deposits associated with some specific glomerulopathies. Expand
Juxtaglomerular Cell Tumor: A Distinct Mesenchymal Tumor of Kidney
TLDR
Juxtaglomerular cell tumor (JGCT) is an unusual mesenchymal entity of the kidney causing hypertension and hypokalemia due to secondary hyperaldosteronism. Expand

TLDR
Retroperitoneal laparoscopic partial nephrectomy is a feasible and effective method for the surgical removal of reninoma and facilitates the selection of less invasive surgical approaches. Expand
Reninoma: An Uncommon Cause of Renin-Mediated Hypertension
TLDR
The case of reninoma in an adolescent girl emphasizing clinical presentation, diagnostic evaluation, and medical and surgical treatment of this rare tumor is presented. Expand
[Hypertension and hypokalemia - a reninoma as the cause of suspected liquorice-induced arterial hypertension].
TLDR
The constellation of hypokalaemia and hypertension often leads to important causes of secondary hypertension such as primary hyperaldosteronism or renal artery stenosis, but less frequent causes should also be considered in the differential diagnoses, such as liquorice overindulgence or reninoma. Expand
Hypertonus und Hypokaliämie - Der Verdacht einer Lakritz-induzierten Hypertonie entpuppt sich als Reninom.
TLDR
The constellation of hypokalaemia and hypertension often leads to important causes of secondary hypertension such as primary hyperaldosteronism or renal artery stenosis, but less frequent causes should also be considered in the differential diagnoses, such as liquorice overindulgence or reninoma.

Clinical Study of Hypertension in Elderly with Special Reference to Risk Factors and End Organ Damage
TLDR
It is found that ISH is the commonest type of hypertension in elderly age group and the most common end organ damage is LVH followed by renal dysfunction. Expand
Hypoxia-Induced Endothelial Progenitor Cell Function Is Blunted in Angiotensinogen Knockout Mice
TLDR
It was found that AGT+/− mice, the incorporation of EPCs into the tumor vasculature was significantly reduced, and lung tumor growth and melanoma metastasis were attenuated, suggesting a blunting of response to hypoxia. Expand
