Title: Concurrent Ipsilateral Renal Cell Carcinoma and Papillary Renal Cell Carcinoma in an Individual with End Stage Renal Disease
Developed under the guidance of Dr. Robert Terreberry , Osteopathic Medicine

Gross dissection of an 85-year-old white male with a listed cause of death as end stage renal disease (ESRD), revealed two concurrent, ipsilateral, renal cell carcinomas of varying etiologies. ESRD is a growing health concern in this country, with multiple risk factors contributing to its development, and the treatments being dialysis, and ultimately transplantation. There are many associated complications, including increased risk of cancer, with renal cell carcinoma being the most prevalent. The purpose of this study was to investigate the pathogenesis of renal tumors in this individual.
