abstract

  • Sarcomatoid dedifferentiation was not an independent predictor of CSS in surgically treated RCC patients in the present matched-pair series. Because pathology reports form the basis on which study specimens are selected for further studies, which are clearly needed to advance our understanding of the prognostic value of SD in RCC, it is imperative that pathologists reliably report on absence or presence and the estimated percentage of a coexisting sarcomatoid component.
