papillary renal cell carcinoma

^ http://www.ebi.ac.uk/efo/EFO_0000640


Papillary renal cell carcinoma is a renal cell carcinoma characterized as the second most common type of renal cell carcinoma. The cancerous cells form some projections in a finger shape, called papillae, in the tumor. This type of cancer is more common among African Americans and has a good prognosis if treated with surgery in its early stages.

Also known as chromophil carcinoma, it represents a minority of renal cell carcinomas. It can be hereditary or sporadic. The sporadic papillary renal cell carcinoma is characterized by trisomy of chromosomes 7, 16, and 17, and loss of chromosome Y. The peak incidence is in the sixth and seven decades. It is classified as type 1 or 2, based on the cytoplasmic volume and the thickness of the lining neoplastic cells. The prognosis is more favorable than for conventional (clear cell) renal cell carcinoma. -- 2003
