SANCHEZ-MARTIN, F.M. et al. The cystic component in the renal cancer: conceptual overview. Actas Urol Esp [online]. 2008, vol.32, n.5, pp.507-516. ISSN 0210-4806.

The renal cancer (RC) cystic component is on the radiological tests and could be consolidate with pathological analysis. The concepts "cystic renal cancer" or "cystic renal tumor" contain a group of entities range from cystic grown pattern RCs to pseudocystic tumors as well as cystic renal diseases coinciding with the RC. The CR and the cystic renal diseases have a great variety to sorts of presentations, giving different ways of radiological images, blending solid and cystic areas. Some papers use indiscriminately expression "cystic" without pathologic proof. Just cystic grown pattern RCs and multilocular cystic carcinoma could be named "cystic renal tumors". For de rest, especially over image study, is more suitable to use expressions as "renal tumor of cystic configuration", while pathologic report are available.

Keywords : Cystic renal tumor; Renal cancer; Renal cyst; Cystic pattern; Renal pseudocyst.
