Syn: Bone Metastasizing Renal Tumour of Childhood

Like renal rhabdoid tumour, Clear cell sarcoma of the kidney (CCSK) was first recognised as a result of collaborative studies and central pathology review.

Clear cell sarcoma of the kidney (CCSK) occurs rarely before 6 months and is commonest in children aged 1-6 years.

Clear cell sarcoma of the kidney (CCSK ) has no characteristic macroscopic features, although metastasis to bone, particularly the skull is a frequent feature of untreated tumours.

Microscopy typically shows clear cells with vesicular nuclei, a low mitotic rate and a chicken-wire capillary network.

However there are many variants including classic, epithelioid , spindled, sclerosing, myxoid, trabecular, pericytomatous, cystic, storiform, anaplastic and other patterns.  

Some tumours simulate (and possibily may rarely actually show) epithelial differentiation.

Electronmicroscopy shows the clear appearance to be due to extracellular matrix.

Tumour cells are immunoreactive for vimentin.

Clear cell sarcoma of the kidney (CCSK) remains the pediatric renal tumour most frequently misdiagnosed.

Early diagnosis of this tumour is necessary due to its aggressiveness and its ability to cause bone metastases.
