Renal oncocytomatosis is a rare condition (3-7% of all renal tumors) where multiple oncocytoma tumors exist in the same patients.
Most of renal tumors are asymptomatic and diagnose incidentally.
abdominal pain or mass can present in larger size lesions. Oncocytomatosis pathophysiology: Oncocytomas are benign growth of epithelial cells(intercalated cells) in the renal collecting ducts.It acts in a benign fashion with well encapsulated feature and associated with tuberous...
Findings and procedure details
Several Therapeutic options are available to treat oncocytomatumors.
Each option has benefits and risks as following: Active surveillance: Benefits: safe and doesn't risk the renal function. Risks: it cannot establish a definitive diagnosis without biopsy or control the pain that elicited from tumor enlargement. Percutanous ablation: Benefits: Less invasive and morbid than surgery.
Better nephrone-sparing approach compared to surgery.
Ability to perform biopsy. Risks: bleeding,
Essentiallyall cases of multiple,
bilateral oncocytomas have previously been managed with either surveillance or surgery,
including partial or radicalnephrectomy. Thereare limited reports of ablation as a management technique for oncocytomas,
but initial results are promising. Percutaneous ablation is often associated with less complications and quicker recoverytimes. Therarity of this condition and lack of long-term outcomes has made it difficult to draw any definitive conclusions on management
