Objectives: To study the histopathological spectrum of renal tumors in resected nephrectomy specimens at a tertiary care hospital and to analyse 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 to5th decade of life with male to female ratio of1.70:1. 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.
Conclusion: Histopathological spectrum of renal tumors in this study was consistent with previous studies with renal cell carcinoma(RCC) being the commonest malignant tumor and conventional/clear cell RCC as the most common subtype in adults. Wilms tumor was the most common childhood tumor.
