Carcinoma, Renal Cell
Neoplastic Syndromes, Hereditary
Renal tumors in patients with hereditary leiomyomatosis and renal cell cancer syndrome are significantly more aggressive than those in patients with other hereditary renal tumor syndromes. In contrast to other familial renal cancer syndromes, the observation of 3 cm or less renal tumors associated with hereditary leiomyomatosis and renal cell cancer is not recommended. Careful followup of affected and at risk individuals in families is necessary.
