Pathologic characterization of renal epithelial neoplasms arising in nonfunctioning kidneys

Human Pathology

Nonfunctioning kidneys secondary to various etiologies display different histopathological features. Studies focused on incidence and types of renal neoplasms using the new World Health Organization and International Society of Urological Pathology classification system in various types of nonfunctioning kidneys are very limited. We identified 311 nephrectomies of nonfunctioning kidneys and categorized them into 5 categories: acquired cystic kidney disease (ACKD, n = 61); end-stage renal disease, nonspecific (ESRD, n = 63); adult polycystic kidney disease (APKD, n = 49); failed transplant kidney (FTK, n = 96); and those caused by obstructive conditions in the kidney (OCK, n = 42). ACKD (70%) and ESRD (43%) had higher cancer incidences than the other 3 groups (APKD = 2%, FTK = 0%, and OCK = 5%). Besides clear cell renal cell carcinoma (RCC) and papillary RCC, clear cell papillary RCC had a much higher incidence within ACKD patients (13/61) compared to other groups. ACKD-associated RCC was only identified in ACKD patients. ACKD patients had significantly longer dialysis duration compared to ESRD, APKD, and FTK. Although they had similar risk for clear cell RCC and papillary RCC, ACKD patients had a much higher risk for ACKD-assoc...Continue Reading
