● Described in one series (Am J Surg Pathol 1999;23:772) with similar tumor described after treatment for cardiac leiomyosarcoma (Urology 2007;70:178.e13)
● 4 cases described with mean age 9 years, range 5-13 years
● Mean interval between neuroblastoma and carcinoma of 7 years (range 3-12 years)
● Expansile masses of large cells with well defined cell membranes
● Abundant eosinophilic, oncocytic or reticular cytoplasm
● Enlarged nuclei with mildly irregular contours, distinct nucleoli
● Occasional lipid-laden histiocytes, psammoma bodies and mitotic figures
● Cells arranged in solid and papillary patterns
● May resemble high grade papillary renal cell carcinoma, but predominantly solid and without necrosis
● EMA, vimentin, CK8, CK18 and variable CK 20
● HMB45, S100 and CK7
● 14q31 and 20q13 abnormalities
● Also other changes not typical for renal cell carcinoma
● Microvilli and cell junctions, less mitochondria than oncocytoma
● No microvesicles
