Abstract

Chromophobe renal cell carcinoma (CRCC) is a distinct variant of renal carcinoma generally affecting adults. We report a case of an unusual CRCC, arising in a male child affected by hypospadias. This case demonstrates that CRCC can occur in the pediatric patients and can be associated with genital tract anomalies such as Wilms tumor.
