Answer

Answer

Of 37 patients with RRCC with available follow-up, 16 (43%) died from their disease within 1 to 36 months of diagnosis, indicating that rhabdoid differentiation is associated with aggressive tumor behavior and a high mortality rate similar to that seen for sarcomatoid differentiation. [8, 9, 10, 11] Prognostic factors specific to RRCC have not yet been determined.
