Multiple renal neoplasms: a case of 3 histologically dissimilar primary tumors

J Urol. 1991 Jun;145(6):1251-3. doi: 10.1016/s0022-5347(17)38591-9.


A 69-year-old woman who presented with bilateral renal masses and gross hematuria was found to have 3 different primary renal neoplasms. She first underwent left partial nephrectomy for an oncocytoma and subsequently right radical nephroureterectomy for transitional cell carcinoma of the pelvis. An incidental angiomyolipoma was found in the specimen. Deoxyribonucleic acid image analysis of all 3 tumors is presented.
