This grand round has already taken place.
Many commonly encountered neoplasms show eosinophilic cytoplasm. While most of the tumors are malignant, there is also a benign entity: oncocytoma. Even in the malignant categories, the tumors show different degree of aggressiveness; therefore it is important to render the correct diagnosis so that patients can be managed accordingly. Some tumors are associated with specific clinical syndromes; thus clinical and familial histories are essential part of the diagnosis work-ups. My presentation will discuss the strategies in diagnosing the renal cell neoplasms with eosinophilic neoplasms using histological features, immunostains, cytogenetics, and molecular studies.

1). Update pathology attendings and residents with new diagnostic entities of renal cell neoplasms with eosinophilic cytoplasm
2). Discuss the ancillary studies which can be used to aid diagnoses when there are difficult cases.
3). Discuss the importance of genetic /molecular study results and importance of clinical and family history.
