Abstract

There is a wide pathological spectrum of kidney sarcomas that show characteristic histology, ontogeny, and clinical-biological behavior. While leiomyosarcomas commonly arise from the capsule, solitary fibrous tumors and clear cell sarcomas typically show renal sinus and medullary epicenter, respectively. Although distribution and imaging findings of some sarcomas may be characteristic, definitive diagnosis warrants histopathological examination following surgery. Renal sarcomas manifest advanced disease at presentation and portend poor prognosis.
