chromophobe renal cell carcinoma

^ http://www.ebi.ac.uk/efo/EFO_0000335


Chromophobe adenocarcinoma is a renal cell carcinoma described as the third most common type of renal cell carcinoma. The cancerous cells are similar with the clear cells, they appear pale when viewed under microscope, but there are larger and display different features than clear cells. This type of cancer rarely metastasizes, and the tumors can be successfully removed with surgery.

A type of carcinoma that comprises a minority of renal cell carcinomas. It is characterized by loss of chromosomes 1 and Y. Based on the cytoplasmic characteristics of the neoplastic cells, this type of carcinoma is classified as classic (typical) or eosinophilic. It has a much better prognosis than other renal cell carcinomas.
