Abstract

In cases of renal carcinoma, preoperative cytologic verification of the diagnosis and assessment of the malignancy grade by aspiration biopsy is part of our diagnostic routine. Though echotomography and computerized tomography have reduced the need of diagnostic verification, there still remain a number of patients with a small tumour where needle puncture is useful to distinguish between a cyst and a tumour, sometimes a cystic tumour, and to distinguish adenocarcinoma from renal pelvic cancer. In addition aspiration biopsy is an easy and reliable method for preoperative malignancy grading.
