Bilateral chromophobe cell renal carcinoma in tuberous sclerosis complex.

Author information

Department of Urology, Yokohama Dai-ichi Hospital, Japan.


We report on a patient with tuberous sclerosis complex and polycystic kidney disease who developed bilateral chromophobe cell renal carcinoma. We discuss the tuberous sclerosis complex, associated bilateral renal cell carcinoma, polycystic kidney disease and chromophobe cell renal carcinoma; a recently established subtype with a rather favorable prognosis. In a patient with tuberous sclerosis complex and multiple space-occupying lesions, a diagnosis of angiomyolipoma should be considered first but bilateral and/or multifocal renal cell carcinoma is a likely diagnosis.
