Two cases of renal oncocytoma are characterized by histologic electron microscopic, and immunohistochemical evaluation. In one case there was a coexistent renal cell carcinoma. The immunophenotype of the oncocytes provide evidence for an origin from the distal nephron. The results indicate that immunohistochemical methods can be helpful in discriminating renal oncocytoma from (granular type) renal cell carcinoma.
