Can renal oncocytoma be distinguished from chromophobe renal cell carcinoma by the presence of fibrous capsule
Virchows Archiv, 12/30/2009Demirovic A et al.
Average thickness of capsule in CRCCs was 337.7 microm, and 115.4 microm in renal oncocytomas, but the median was not statistically significant (P = 0.198). Studies with a larger number of cases are needed to conclude if this characteristic could be a low–cost, reliable microscopic feature in differentiating between CRCC and renal oncocytoma.
