Fine-needle aspiration (FNA) biopsy of the kidney has a non-disputable role in the diagnosis and treatment of renal lesions. Particularly, recent improvements in renal imaging techniques have brought renal FNA to the forefront, since small and asymptomatic renal masses are increasingly being detected. Consequentially, there is a pressing need for accurate typing as well as grading of RCC, which, in turn, will aid in selection of cases of nephron sparing surgeries, partial nephrectomies or even non-surgical measures like cryoablation. These therapeutic options are however not advisable for high-grade neoplasms. During this webinar, we will review broad spectrum of renal FNAs including normal renal structures, inflammatory and reactive changes, cystic lesions and benign and malignant neoplasms. We will emphasize diagnostic clues and pitfalls.
