Abstract

The current study presents a case of Xp11.2 translocation renal cell carcinoma (Xp11.2 RCC) in a 30-year-old female. The patient was referred to The Affiliated Drum Tower Hospital of the Medical College of Nanjing University (Nanjing, Jiangsu, China) due to a right renal tumor without evident symptoms, which was found by a routine physical examination. A computed tomography (CT) scan indicated that the mass exhibited cystic and solid components. The patient underwent laparoscopic radiofrequency ablation-assisted enucleation. Immunohistochemistry revealed intense nuclear staining for transcription factor E3 protein in the cancer cells. The patient was diagnosed with Xp11.2 RCC. The urological and radiological outcomes remained satisfactory after > 2.5 years of follow-up.
