Abstract

Xp11.2 translocation tumor is a rare but aggressive form of renal cell carcinoma that predominantly occurs in children but also may be found in young adults. Because this type of cancer is diagnosed via histologic and chromosomal analysis, clinicians should consider translocation tumor in the differential diagnosis of patients with renal lesions and gross hematuria.
