Renal angiomyoadenomatous tumour
Diagnosis in short

Renal cell carcinoma with clear cells and leiomyomatous bands. H&E stain.

Synonyms renal cell carcinoma with angioleiomyoma-like stroma, renal cell carcinoma associated with prominent angioleiomyoma-like proliferation

LM leiomyomatous capsule of variable thickness, tubular structures with (1) apical snouts, and (2) clear cells with basal nuclei and mild nuclear atypia
LM DDx clear cell renal cell carcinoma, papillary renal cell carcinoma, (epithelioid) angiomyolipoma, mixed epithelial and stromal tumour, tuberous sclerosis-associated renal cell carcinoma
IHC CK7 +ve, CK20 +ve, CAM5.2 +ve
Gross tan-brown mass +/-cystic component
Grossing notes partial nephrectomy grossing, total nephrectomy for tumour grossing
Site kidney - see kidney tumours

Associated Dx possibly related to clear cell papillary renal cell carcinoma - the WHO lumps this entity with it
Prevalence extremely rare
Prognosis good

Renal angiomyoadenomatous tumour, abbreviated RAT, is an uncommon kidney tumour not recognized by the WHO classification of renal neoplasia.

The Vancouver modification of the WHO classification[1] lumps it with clear cell papillary renal cell carcinoma (also known as clear cell tubulopapillary renal cell carcinoma).

Synonyms are renal cell carcinoma with angioleiomyoma-like stroma and renal cell carcinoma associated with prominent angioleiomyoma-like proliferation.[2]

It may be one and the same with TCEB1-mutated renal cell carcinoma.



  • Typical age (years): 50s.[4]
    • Age range: 40-93 years.



  • Tan-brown renal mass +/-cystic component.



  • Leiomyomatous capsule of variable thickness - key feature.
  • Tubular structures with:





  • CK7 +ve.
  • CK20 +ve.
  • CAM5.2 +ve.
  • AE1/AE3 +ve.
