MOST pathologists will agree that the histogenesis of the so-called Grawitz tumours of the kidney was settled by the classical paper of Stoerk published in 19081; but the arguments of this author, convincing as they were in disproving the suprarenal nature of the ‘hypernephroma’, were much less so in demonstrating their renal origin. That is the reason why this latter opinion has been challenged time and again. New theories have been put forward, among which those of Apitz2 and of Feyrter3 have… 
Pathobiology of Renal Carcinogenesis
TLDR
Several original observations in animal models and a number of new findings in man have reopened the discussion on the cellular origin, the mechanism of development, the classification, and the prognosis of renal cell tumors.
Pathology of Renal Cell Carcinoma
TLDR
The histogenesis of RCC was controversial for a long time, and preference is given to renal tubular histogenesis, mainly on the basis of animal experiments with carcinogens and observation of prestages and early stages of epithelial renal tumors in human kidneys.
Ultrastructure of clear cell carcinoma of the ovary
TLDR
The fine structure of an ovarian clear cell carcinoma in a 65 year old woman was analysed and the term “mesonephroma ovarii” is recommended to eliminate to designate theclear cell carcinomas of the ovary.
History of Renal Neoplasia
Rayer in the introduction to his series of renal tumors published in 1841, discussed the significance of these observations and suggested that Sennert’s comments referred to sclerosing chronic
Differential Morphologic Criteria in Sarcomatous-Like Renal Carcinoma
TLDR
This histological approach is useful when a pathologist, dealing with a lesion suggestive of soft tissue tumor, has to diagnose or exclude an epithelial origin for the neoplasia.
Carcinoma of the kidney in a 15‐year‐old boy. Unusual histologic features with formation of microvilli
TLDR
A granular cell adenocarcinoma of the kidney in a 15‐year‐old boy is described, giving further support to the genesis of renal cell carcinoma from the tubular epithelium.
Medical Aspects of Renal Carcinoma
TLDR
Some aspects of this neoplasm which may be of interest to the internist and general physician are proposed to review.
Renal oncocytoma
TLDR
A multicentric renal oncocytoma is described, the sixth so far reported, and the prognosis following surgical removal is excellent, despite the fact that many of these tumours are large.
Ultrastructure of renal adenoma.
TLDR
A series of 10 intrarenal adenomas in carcinoma-bearing kidneys has been studied using tissue fixed rapidly after nephrectomy by perfusion with 2% glutaraldehyde and the results confirm their tubular origin.
Renal oncocytoma. Report of five cases and review of literature
TLDR
The distinctive appearance of this lesion is a well circumscribed, uniform tan‐brown tumor with a prominent central scar and lack of necrosis or hemorrhage.

TLDR
Epithelia noted for their water transport have been studied by electron microscopy with particular emphasis upon basal specializations, and it is apparent that the pattern of folding is quite distinctive in the different epithelia.
