Primitive neuroectodermal tumor of the kidney with hyaline cells.Urol Int. 2005; 75(2):184-6.UI
Primitive neuroectodermal tumor (PNET) of the kidney is a rare disease with high malignant potential. It affects young adults and has the tendency towards early metastasis. Relying on recently available immunohistochemistry and cytogenetic investigations, today most authors define PNET as part of the same nosologic entity as Ewing's sarcoma. We present the case of a 22-year-old man with a PNET arising from the kidney with, to our knowledge, a previously undescribed finding of hyaline cells within the tumor.
