A series of 43 papillary renal cell carcinomas (PRCCs) were analyzed to investigate the prognostic value of the morphological subtyping (type 1/type 2) proposed by Delahunt and Eble. Twenty-six cases were type 1 (small cuboid cells arranged in single or double layers), 13 cases were type 2 (voluminous eosinophilic cells with irregular pseudostratification pattern), and four cases with oncocytic cells (large eosinophilic cells with round regular nuclei) were distinct from type 2 and grouped… CONTINUE READING
