Immunohistochemical investigation of transitional cell carcinoma of the upper urinary tract

Abstract


The paper reviews the data available in the literature in immunohistochemical investigation of transitional cell carcinomas of renal pelvis and ureter. The classical tumour characteristics of transitional cell carcinoma of the upper urinary tract - pathological stage and grade.Traditional morphological criteria are not sufficient to precisely predict the biological behavior of transitional cell carcinomas of renal pelvis and ureter. Immunohistochemical investigation gives additional prognostic information in patients with transitional cell carcinoma of the upper urinary tract.
