SPRINGER PEREZ, Patricia de los Milagros; SUAREZ SORI, Boris; FIGUEREDO GARCIA, Oscar  y  TORRES LEBRATO, Levin. Histological characterization of renal cell carcinoma. AMC [online]. 2017, vol.21, n.4, pp.452-460. ISSN 1025-0255.

Background: the incidence of renal cancer increases worldwide and specifically in Cuba, which constitutes a serious health problem. Due to this, associated to the social and economic impact of the onset of the disease, it is necessary to characterize patients with renal cell cancer to identify the factors associated with their evolution and survival. Objective: to characterize histopathologically renal cell carcinoma at Manuel Ascunce Domenech Hospital. Methods: a cross-sectional descriptive study was conducted from September 2014 to June 2016. The universe consisted of 22 patients with renal cell cancer diagnosed at the aforementioned care and teaching institution, who met the inclusion criteria, with whom the research was carried out. Results: clear cell carcinoma was predominant (68,2 %) followed by papillary carcinoma (22,7 %). The majority of patients presented tumors between 10 and 15 cm (68,2 %). Patients with grade III tumors were more frequent (45,5 %) followed by those with grade II tumors (22,7 %). Conclusions: male patients aged between 55 and 64 years and white skin predominated. The most frequent associated factor was smoking. Most of the patients had low back pain, hematuria and palpable tumor as clinical manifestations. The most frequent tumor was clear cell carcinoma, with a size between 10 and 15 cm and stage III.
