Acquired Cystic Disease-Associated Renal Cell Carcinoma
A renal tumor with variable morphological patterns arising exclusively in end-stage kidneys with acquired cystic disease.
These tumors occur most often, but not always, in patients undergoing long-term hemodialysis with acquired cystic disease and are usually incidental finding detected during their follow-up. Often they are multiple and bilateral. It represents roughly one third of all renal cell neoplasms arising in end-stage renal disease.
It frequently occurs in patients receiving hemodialysis of more than 10 years
There is no gender predilection.
There is no site predilection.
Surgical treatment is recommended.
Because of early detection of tumors in patients on periodical follow-up imaging analyses for chronic renal failure, the clinical behavior is usually indolent.
