Material and Methods: This is a retrospective study to review and reclassify papillary, oncocytic, and chromophobe renal tumors based on the new WHO classification and correlate with clinical data, gross, microscopic features, and immunohistochemistry markers.
Results: A total of thirteen cases were reviewed and the tumor grade was changed for three out of four cases of papillary renal cell carcinoma and a single case was recategorized and graded. In nine cases of oncocytic and chromophobe renal tumors, the diagnoses were modified in 3 cases.
Conclusion: Newly defined molecular renal tumors require advanced immunohistochemistry markers and molecular tests. This poses diagnostic challenges to pathologists practicing in low resource settings where molecular tests are not available.
