Preffered Diagnostic Term.Renal mesenchymal tumor (Hard and Butler 1970a). Because of the histologic complexity of these tumors imposed by the potential for differentiation into a wide spectrum of connective tissue types, it may be useful to qualify the predominant histologic feature, e.g., fibromatous, fibrosarcomatous, leiomyosarcomatous, rhadbomyosarcomatous, or hemangiosarcomatous variant of renal mesenchymal tumo.
