Malignant Renal Neoplasms

Part of the Medical Radiology book series (MEDRAD)


The kidney has a mesodermal origin and therefore different mesenchymal cells, such as connective tissue, osseous, adipose, and muscle cells, can be found. Different kinds of sarcomas may derive from these cells. Mesenchymal tumors may present as sarcomas, when a single cell type (connective tissue, adipose, or muscular) is found, or as sarcomatoid carcinomas, when epithelial cells are associated with mesenchymal cells.
