Tissue sampling of renal masses is traditionally performed using percutaneous sonographic or CT guidance core biopsy (CB) with or without touch preparation cytology and/or fine-needle aspiration cytology (FNAC). The combined used of CB and FNAC is expanding in clinical practice, especially in small renal masses and plays a pivotal role in therapeutic decision making. Grouping the renal neoplasms in differential diagnostic groups helps in choosing specific immunohistochemical markers and reaching an accurate diagnosis.
