Abstract

A rare case of primary renal carcinoid tumour is presented. The diagnosis was based on immunohistochemically diffuse cytoplasmic positivity for chromogranin A and neuron-specific enolase, in addition to histologic findings. Only 14 previous cases of this tumour have been documented in the literature.
