  • Vascular neoplasms and related lesions of kidney

    Michelle S. Lin, Jae Y. Ro

    Vascular tumors arising in the kidney are distinctly uncommon occurrences and have not been well-characterized in the literature; most cases have been documented in single reports or small case series. These tumors often exhibit nonspecific clinical and radiologic features and may mimic malignant epithelial tumors such as renal cell carcinoma (RCC) on imaging studies, necessitating nephrectomy wit...

  • Histopathological review of renal pelvic tumours of Balkan nephropathy cases from Southern Serbia

    Diana Herman, Goran Stanojević ... Peter Mantle

    Urothelial tumour frequently associates with atrophied kidney pelvis in Balkan endemic nephropathy but histopathology illustration lacks both definition and immune profile for differential diagnosis from renal cell carcinoma. Histology sections of anonymized archived renal tumours and associated kidney of eight local Balkan nephropathy patients were stained by haematoxylin and eosin, and immune pr...

  • Multilocular cystic renal neoplasm of low malignant potential: Mimicker of cystic clear cell carcinoma – urologist’s perspective

    Harish Challa, Hariharasudhan Sekar ... Natarajan Kumaresan

    Multilocular cystic renal neoplasm of low malignant potential (MCRNLMP) is a rare subtype of clear cell renal cell carcinoma (ccRCC) accounting for 2-4% of RCC. It is defined as a neoplasm that is composed entirely of numerous cysts surrounded by fibrous capsule and septa containing clear cells without expansile growth or mural nodules (WHO 2016). The purpose of this manuscript is to highlight tha...

  • Effects of P-MAPA as immunomodulator on markers for energy metabolism in bladder cancer

    Wagner J. Fávaro, Petra K. Böckelmann ... N. Durán

    This study characterized and compared cellular energetic metabolism features in the treatment of chemically induced non-muscle invasive bladder cancer (NMIBC) in Fischer 344 rats that were submitted to intravesical immunotherapies with P-MAPA (Protein aggregate magnesium-ammonium phospholinoleate-palmitoleate anhydride) and Bacillus Calmette-Guérin (BCG). Our results showed that immunotherapy with...

  • Histologic variants of acinar prostate carcinomas: Clinicopathologic importance

    Harmanjot Singh, Ziad M. El-Zaatari, Jae Y. Ro

    Acinar carcinoma comprises more than 90% of prostatic adenocarcinomas and is characterized by a small gland proliferation with an infiltrative growth pattern. The numerous, variably-defined histological variants of prostatic adenocarcinoma can prove to be diagnostic challenges and show prognostic differences when compared to the usual acinar carcinoma, thus emphasizing the importance in accurate r...

  • Histopathological variant types diagnosed in prostate surgery

    Semih Aktaş, Hikmet Köseoğlu ... Sevim Baykal Koca

    Rare pathological variants may only be diagnosed after the surgical treatments applied. We aimed to determine the rare variant pathologies and their frequencies diagnosed in prostate surgeries performed in routine patient care. We retrospectively analyzed hospital pathology records for all prostate surgeries performed namely TUR-P, open prostatectomy, and radical prostatectomy between October 2014...
