Abstract

Renal cell carcinoma accounts for 3% of all adult cancers and has many unusual features in its presentation, diagnosis, and management. It develops in a significant number of patients with acquired renal cystic disease, a disorder found almost exclusively in chronic hemodialysis patients. Abnormalities of chromosome 3 are frequently found in sporadic and familial forms. Radical nephrectomy remains the only potentially curative therapy for this tumor.
