Daniel A Anderson, Maria S Tretiakova
Clear cell papillary renal cell carcinoma (CCPRCC) is a newly recognized entity in the 2016 WHO classification and usually presents as a small, circumscribed, solitary mass of indolent nature. CCPRCCs could seldom occur in conjunction with other synchronous or metachronous kidney tumors and even less frequently as bilateral masses. To our knowledge, multiple bilateral CCPRCCs have never been described with the existence of a synchronous well-differentiated neuroendocrine tumor of the kidney and hence reported here as a unique case...

BACKGROUND: Few genetic studies have focused on unilateral renal agenesis (URA), which is a disorder with insidious clinical manifestations and a tendency to result in renal failure. We aimed to detect pathogenic mutations in nephrogenesis-related genes, which were identified by a literature review conducted among a large cohort of Chinese Han patients with URA. METHODS: Totally, 86 unrelated URA patients were included. All URA patients were diagnosed by employing radiological methods...

Flash pulmonary edema frequently develop in case of bilateral renal artery stenosis and unilateral renal artery stenosis with functional solitary kidney. In some rare cases, unilateral renal artery stenosis with bilaterally functional kidneys may also lead to flash pulmonary edema. Here, we present a case of flash pulmonary edema caused by accessory renal artery stenosis. To our knowledge, it is the first case reported in the literature.

Life with a solitary functioning kidney (SFK) may be different from that when born with two kidneys. Based on the hyperfiltration hypothesis, a SFK may lead to glomerular damage with hypertension, albuminuria and progression towards end-stage renal disease. As the prognosis of kidney donors was considered to be very good, having a SFK has been considered to be a benign condition. In contrast, our research group has demonstrated that being born with or acquiring a SFK in childhood results in renal injury before adulthood in over 50% of those affected...

Renal vascular lesions (RVL) are rare and their morphological spectrum remains largely unknown, particularly in children. In this study, we characterize the clinicopathological features of RVL in a cohort of twelve children. Seven lesions were classified as previously recognized entities: vascular malformations (four), papillary endothelial hyperplasia (two), and pyogenic granuloma (lobular capillary hemangioma) (one). An eighth lesion showed nonspecific findings which were interpreted as reactive during our review...

Takayasu arteritis is a disease that results in the granulomatous inflammation of large vessel walls. Takayasu arteritis is generally observed in young females during the second or third decades of life. This disease is treated by the revascularization of the affected organs either by surgery or by endovascular interventions. In this study, we present a case where renal autotransplantation was performed on a lady with an autologous saphenous vein graft subsequent to numerous previous endovascular interventions for her solitary kidney due to Takayasu arteritis-induced renal artery stenosis...

REVIEW
Jay D Raman, Rosa Park
Radical nephroureterectomy with an ipsilateral bladder cuff is the referent standard for management of muscle-invasive, high-grade, or bulky upper-tract urothelial carcinoma (UTUC). Nonetheless, certain patients with UTUC have imperative or elective indications for kidney preservation thereby lending to more conservative strategies for management of this disease. Areas covered: A review of the PubMED and Medline databases was performed to identify original scientific and review articles discussing retrograde ureteroscopic or percutaneous antegrade resection of UTUC tumors published between 1995 and 2016...

INTRODUCTION: Partial nephrectomy (PN) reduces the risk of post-operative chronic renal insufficiency (CRI). However, some patients still develop CRI after PN, and may eventually require dialysis. Being able to predict renal function before PN helps in counseling patients and managing expectations. We aimed to construct nomograms that predict estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR), defined by the Modification of Diet in Renal Disease (MDRD) and the Chronic Kidney Disease Epidemiology Collaboration (CKD-EPI) formulae, at one year after PN, using only pre-operative covariates as predictors...
