Differentiation between renal oncocytomas and chromophobe renal cell carcinomas using dynamic contrast-enhanced computed tomography.

Abdom Radiol (NY) 2021 07 12;46(7):3309-3316. Epub 2021 Mar 12.

Department of Radiology, Affiliated Hospital of Nanjing University of Chinese Medicine, No. 155 Hanzhong Road, Nanjing, 210029, Jiangsu, China.

Imaging Characterization of Renal Masses.

Medicina (Kaunas) 2021 Jan 8;57(1). Epub 2021 Jan 8.

Radiology Department, Hospital Clinic, University of Barcelona (UB), 08036 Barcelona, Spain.

The detection of a renal mass is a relatively frequent occurrence in the daily practice of any Radiology Department. The diagnostic approaches depend on whether the lesion is cystic or solid. Cystic lesions can be managed using the Bosniak classification, while management of solid lesions depends on whether the lesion is well-defined or infiltrative. Read More

Histo-molecular differentiation of renal cancer subtypes by mass spectrometry imaging and rapid proteome profiling of formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded tumor tissue sections.

Oncotarget 2020 Nov 3;11(44):3998-4015. Epub 2020 Nov 3.

Department of Biochemistry & Molecular Biology and VILLUM Center for Bioanalytical Sciences, University of Southern Denmark, Odense, Denmark.

Pathology differentiation of renal cancer types is challenging due to tissue similarities or overlapping histological features of various tumor (sub) types. As assessment is often manually conducted outcomes can be prone to human error and therefore require high-level expertise and experience. Mass spectrometry can provide detailed histo-molecular information on tissue and is becoming increasingly popular in clinical settings. Read More

CT-based radiomics for differentiating renal tumours: a systematic review.

Abdom Radiol (NY) 2021 05 2;46(5):2052-2063. Epub 2020 Nov 2.

Department of Medical Imaging Research Office, Royal Brisbane and Women's Hospital, Brisbane, QLD, Australia.

Purpose: Differentiating renal tumours into grades and tumour subtype from medical imaging is important for patient management; however, there is an element of subjectivity when performed qualitatively. Quantitative analysis such as radiomics may provide a more objective approach. The purpose of this article is to systematically review the literature on computed tomography (CT) radiomics for grading and differentiating renal tumour subtypes. Read More

Mass Spectrometry Imaging Differentiates Chromophobe Renal Cell Carcinoma and Renal Oncocytoma with High Accuracy.

J Cancer 2020 21;11(20):6081-6089. Epub 2020 Aug 21.

Department Hematology, Oncology and Rheumatology, Heidelberg University, Heidelberg, Germany.

While subtyping of the majority of malignant chromophobe renal cell carcinoma (cRCC) and benign renal oncocytoma (rO) is possible on morphology alone, additional histochemical, immunohistochemical or molecular investigations are required in a subset of cases. As currently used histochemical and immunohistological stains as well as genetic aberrations show considerable overlap in both tumors, additional techniques are required for differential diagnostics. Mass spectrometry imaging (MSI) combining the detection of multiple peptides with information about their localization in tissue may be a suitable technology to overcome this diagnostic challenge.

Trans-urethral resection of bladder tumor (TURBT) and radiofrequency ablation of renal tumor: Rare etiologies of chyluria.

Radiol Case Rep 2020 Sep 10;15(9):1579-1583. Epub 2020 Jul 10.

St. Vincent's Medical Center, Bridgeport, CT, USA.

Chyluria is a rare entity which is caused by abnormal communication between the lymphatic system and the urinary tract, which allows the passage of chyle into the urine. Whenever symptomatic, chyluria presents with lower urinary tract symptoms such as dysuria and hematuria. Multiple imaging modalities can aid in diagnosis such as lymphoscintigraphy, retrograde pyelography, CT scan of the abdomen and pelvis, and magnetic resonance imaging. Read More

Radiol Med 2020 Dec 8;125(12):1280-1287. Epub 2020 May 8.

Section of Radiology, Unit of Surgical Sciences, Department of Medicine and Surgery, Azienda Ospedaliero-Universitaria di Parma, University of Parma, Parma, Italy.

Purpose: We investigate the use of ratio of lesion to cortex (L/C) attenuation and aorta-lesion attenuation difference (ALAD) on multiphase contrast-enhanced CT to help distinguish oncocytoma from clear cell RCC in small renal masses (diameter < 4 cm).

Methods: We retrospectively identified 76 patients that undergo CT before surgery for a suspicious small renal mass between January 2014 and December 2018 with pathological diagnosis of 21 oncocytomas (ROs), 25 clear cell RCCs, 7 chromophobe RCCs, 7 papillary RCCs, 7 multilocular cystic RCCs, 7 angiomyolipomas and 2 leiomyomas. CT attenuation values were obtained for the tumor, the normal renal cortex and the aorta, placing a circular region of interest (ROI) in the same slice by two radiologists, independently. Read More

Aberrant Expression of Glyceraldehyde-3-Phosphate Dehydrogenase (GAPDH) in Warthin Tumors.

Cancers (Basel) 2020 Apr 29;12(5). Epub 2020 Apr 29.

Institute of Anatomy and Cell Biology, Philipps-Universität Marburg, 35037 Marburg, Germany.

The Warthin tumor represents the second most frequent benign tumor of the parotid gland and is characterized by the presence of oncocytes rich in structurally and functionally altered mitochondria. Next to its role in metabolism, glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase (GAPDH) is also implicated in cellular mitophagy. Immunohistochemistry was carried out on Warthin tumor and normal control (parotid gland with striated ducts) tissues, using anti-GAPDH specific antibodies followed by digital image analysis.

Mass Spectrometry Imaging Enables Discrimination of Renal Oncocytoma from Renal Cell Cancer Subtypes and Normal Kidney Tissues.

Cancer Res 2020 02 16;80(4):689-698. Epub 2019 Dec 16.

Department of Chemistry, The University of Texas at Austin, Austin, Texas.

Precise diagnosis and subtyping of kidney tumors are imperative to optimize and personalize treatment decision for patients. Patients with the most common benign renal tumor, renal oncocytomas, may be overtreated with surgical resection because of limited preoperative diagnostic methods that can accurately identify the benign condition with certainty. In this study, desorption electrospray ionization (DESI)-mass spectrometry (MS) imaging was applied to study the metabolic and lipid profiles of various types of renal tissues, including normal kidney, renal oncocytoma, and renal cell carcinomas (RCC).

Imaging of Solid Renal Masses.

Urol Clin North Am 2018 Aug 15;45(3):311-330. Epub 2018 Jun 15.

Department of Radiology; UT Southwestern Medical Center, 2201 Inwood Road, Suite 210, Dallas, TX 75390, USA. Electronic address:

The increase in serendipitous detection of solid renal masses on imaging has not resulted in a reduction in mortality from renal cell carcinoma. Consequently, efforts for improved lesion characterization have been pursued and incorporated into management algorithms for distinguishing clinically significant tumors from those with favorable histology or benign conditions. Although diagnostic imaging strategies have evolved for optimized lesion detection, distinction between benign tumors and both indolent and aggressive malignant neoplasms remain an important diagnostic challenge.

Department of Radiology, University of Alabama in Birmingham, Birmingham, AL, USA.

Ectopic thyroid gland is a developmental anomaly that results from the arrest of thyroid tissue along its path of descent from the floor of mouth to the pre tracheal position in the lower neck. It is typically found along the thyroglossal duct with the base of the tongue being the most common site. Apart from mediastinal extension of goiter, the incidence of true intrathoracic ectopic thyroid tissue is rare. Read More

Oncocytoma managed by active surveillance in a transplant allograft kidney: a case report.

World J Surg Oncol 2018 Jul 2;16(1):123. Epub 2018 Jul 2.

Department for the Treatment and Study of Abdominal Diseases and Abdominal Transplantation, IRCCS-ISMETT (Istituto di Ricovero e Cura a Carattere Scientifico - Istituto Mediterraneo per i Trapianti e Terapie ad alta specializzazione), UPMC (University of Pittsburgh Medical Center) Italy, Via E. Tricomi 5, 90127, Palermo, Italy.

Background: The ethical implications of the utilization of kidneys with solid renal masses (SRMs) in transplantation are the subject of lively debate in the transplantation community and beyond. One of such implications is that as the life expectancy of renal transplant patients improve, the prevalence of SRMs in donors is likely to increase. We report a case of an oncocytoma in a renal allograft complicating a deceased-donor kidney transplant. Read More
