Also called conventional / classic type; Historical names: hypernephroma, Grawitz tumor. Epidemiology. 65% – 70% of adult renal cancers. This has led to the term hypernephroma or Grawitz tumor. Nowadays, there is evidence that the usual (nonembryonic) RCC in all its variants derives, in principle.

Gene expression profiling of clear cell renal cell carcinoma: MRI can be used instead of CT if the patient exhibits an allergy to the contrast media administered for gdawitz test.

tuumor Miller, Todd W, ed. When symptoms are present, they may include blood in the urine; urine that is brown or rusty-colored; abdominal pain; weight loss; enlargement of one testicle or varicose veins of the testis varicocele in a male patient; fever; a thin, malnourished appearance; vision abnormalities; and elevated blood pressure.


Papillary RCC with cytoplasmic clearing: Intraoperative ultrasound may be used to help guide placement of the freezing probes. Pathology, Research and Practice. Larger lesions frequently have areas of necrosis. Staging progresses from 1 to 4: Majority of tumours occur sporadicallybut some may develop in members of families with hereditary Tymor [28].

Vigorous criticism of Grawitz was provided by Oskar Stoerk inwho considered the adrenal origin of renal tumours to be unproved. The tumor cells show abundant granular eosinophilic cytoplasm and arranged in solid nests. Another gene, known as VHL, has also been linked with kidney cancer.

For example, liver enzymes such as aspartate aminotransferase [AST] and alanine aminotransferase [ALT] are found to be at abnormally high levels.

Case 8 Case 8. These have the advantage of being less of a burden for the patient and the disease-free survival is comparable to that of open surgery. RCC is resistant to chemotherapy and radiotherapy in most cases, but does respond well to immunotherapy with interleukin-2 or interferon-alpha, biologic, or targeted therapy. Excretory phase is of less worth, but important in assessing the collecting system anatomy especially if the candidate is a potential candidate for a partial nephrectomy.


The debate was initiated by Paul Grawitz when inhe published his observations on the morphology of small, yellow renal tumours. There are some known risk factors, however the significance of other potential risk factors remains more controversial.

Etiology A specific factor in the etiology of RCC is not known at the moment, although a number of dietary, environmental factors, hormonal, celllular and genetic factors associated with increased risk. Renal cell carcinoma spreads metastasizes easily to the lungs and other organs.

Architecturally and cytologically diverse: While not curative, these treatments do provide relief for suffers from symptoms associated with the spread of tumors.
