abstract

  • These results suggest that BMI is an independent predictor of clear-cell histology in patients with a renal cortical tumour. While the aetiology of this phenomenon requires further study, these findings might have implications in determining a patient's risk of harbouring a clear-cell RCC and in subsequent treatment recommendations.
