Radiology: Inherited Renal Carcinomas (note refers to Lynch Syndrome-breast....)



open access - overview/imaging

Abstract
Hereditary forms of kidney carcinoma account for 5–8 % of all malignant kidney neoplasms....
 
See page 12 for Lynch Syndrome (eg. UTUC)

example:
 Fig. 8. Metachronous urothelial carcinoma in the pelvocaliceal
system in a 60-year-old female with Lynch syndrome,
who presented with hematuria and had a history of endometrial
cancer, colon polyps, bladder cancer, and ovarian cancer.
(A) CT urogram shows small filling defects in the right upper
renal collecting system (arrow), which was proved to be grade
2 (of 3) urothelial carcinoma after ureteroscopic biopsy and
subsequently treated with endourologic laser tumor ablation.
(B) At age 64, CT urogram reveals a new large tumor arising
from the left renal pelvis, which was proved to be grade 2 (of 3)
