Answer

Answer

Rhabdoid differentiation is found in 3-7.5% of RCCs, most commonly in CCRCC, although rare cases have been reported involving papillary RCC, chromophobe RCC, and collecting duct (Bellini duct) carcinoma.

Combined analysis of the 4 small series of RRCC published to date shows an average age of 60-64 years at diagnosis and a male-to-female ratio of 1.4:1. [8, 9, 10, 11]
