Abstract

Objectives: To study the histopathological spectrum of renal tumors in resected nephrectomy specimens at a tertiary care hospital and to analyze the age distribution of renal tumors .

Materials and Methods: 184 patients from department of Pathology, Sheri-kashmir institute of medical sciences, Srinagar Kashmir were included in this study. Renal tumors in resected nephrectomy specimens over a period of 10 years from June 2002 to May 2012 were studied. Relevant clinical details were collected from record section of the department.

Results: Of the total of 184 renal tumors studied (89.13%) were found to be malignant and (10.86%) were benign tumors .Most of of patients presented in 4th to 5th decade of life with male to female ratio of 1.70:1. Most common presentation in our patients was flank pain. Histopathologically RCC-clear cell type was the most common subtype in adults and Wilms tumor was the most common childhood tumor
