Flashcards in Male Genital III Deck (32):
1

What is the size of a papillary adenoma of the kidney? what does it look like grossly? what trisomies are popular?

1. <5mm
2. pale, yellow, discrete, well circumscribed
3. 17 and 7

2

Oncocytomas represent how much of renal tubular neoplasms? Are they mostly asymptomatic or symptomatic? what are the major cytogenics?

1. 5%
2. asymptomatic-few with hematuria, flank pain, mass
3. loss of Ch. 1 and 14

3

What does a oncocytoma look like grossly?

well circumscribed, mahogany brown, stellate star

4

What does oncocytoma look like microscopically? tumor cells?

1.solid compact, edematous, occasionally acini or tubules

2. Tumor cells are large, with abundant eosinophilic granular cytoplasm, SMAL ROUND NUCLEI with prominent nucleoli

5

Doe oncocytoma have mitoses on microscopic imaging?

NO NO NO

6

What represents 85-90% of all renal malignancies in adults?

renal cell carcinoma MALE MORE THAN FEMALE 3:1

7

What is the major cause of renal cell carcinoma we need to be aware of?

cigarette smoking

(obesity, hypertension, asbestos, heavy metals, petroleum, chronic failure)

8

Are most cases of renal cell carcinoma sporadic?

Yes
4% are familial (VHL, hereditary clear cell, hereditary papillary)

9

Deletion of which chromosome is the major cause of clear cell? What about for papillary renal cell?

1. 3p- VHL gene
2. trisomy 7, 16, 17 or loss of Y

10

What is the gross characteristics of renal clear cell carcinoma?

round, non-encapsulated, bright yellow gray white tissue with hemorrhage and necrosis

GOLDEN COLOR FROM RICH LIPID CONTENT

11

Is there rich lipid content in renal clear cell carcinoma?

Yes- gives it a golden yellow color

12

What do clear cell tumor cells look like?

round, polygonal with ABUNDANT CYTOPLASM, variable shaped nuclei, with PROMINENT NUCLEOLI

NUCLEI AREN"T LARGE AND DIVIDING LIKE NORMAL CANCERS
[abundant thin walled vessels throughout too]

13

What is the most common type of renal cell carcinoma associated with?

in dialysis-associated cystic disease

14

What is the gross appearance of papillary renal cell carcinoma?

multifocal/bilateral
distinct fibrous tissue capsules
cut surface is friable and necrotic

15

What is the microscopic appearance of papillary renal cell carcinoma? Macrophages? what other key thing might be found?

cuboidal cells arranged in papillary formations
lipid laden macrophages
Psammoma bodies may be present

16

What malignant neoplasm has large pale cells with PROMINENT CELL BORDERS and PERINUCLEAR HALOS? Prognosis?

1. chromophobe renal cell carcinoma
2. very good prognosis

17

What neoplasm does the gross image of chromophobe renal cell carcinoma imitate?

oncocytoma

well circumscribed, yellow tan or brown

18

What is a major characteristic of chromophobe renal cell carcinoma cells?

thick distinct membrane almost like plant cells

19

What are chromophobe renal cell carcinoma tumor cells positive for?

Hale's colloidal iron

20

What neoplasm is defined by nests of malignant cells embedded within fibrotic stroma in a medullary location? what is the prognosis?

1. collecting duct carcinoma
2. extremely poor prognosis

21

What does the microscopic structure of collecting duct carcinoma look like?

1. dilated irregular tubules, papilla lined, single layer of atypical cuboidal cells, HOBNAIL PATTERN

22

Where does collecting duct carcinoma infiltrate?

the surrounding renal parenchyma and produces a large desmoplastic response

23

What does sarcomatous changes mean for prognosis? what do they look like grossly?

1. very poor prognosis
2. bulging, lobulated, soft, fleshy areas

24

sarcomatoid changes appear as what microscopically? what immunostain are they positive for?

1. malignant spindle shaped tumor around glomeruli or other tumor nests
2. pankeratin

25

What percentage of renal cell neoplasm patients present with metastases? where to?

25% -lungs and bones (then lymph, liver, adrenals)

26

What do we treat metastatic renal cell carcinomas with?

IL-2

27

What is the most used treatment for renal cell carcinoma?

surgical- nephrectomy

28

What is a benign neoplasm with a mixture of blood vessels, smooth muscle cells, and adipose tissue? what disease is it associated with? prognosis?

1. angiomyolipoma---WOMEN MORE COMMON
2. tuberous sclerosis
3. excellent prognosis

29

30

What is the gross view of Wilm's tumor?

solitary mass with sharply demarcated fibrous tissue capsule

31

What are the 3 components to Wilm's triphasic histology?
