ABSTRACT
Eosinophilic cytoplasmic globules may be seen in a variety of neoplastic and nonneoplastic conditions and are most often associated with alpha-1-antitrypsin deficiency, several pathologic liver conditions and yolk sac tumors. A few cases of eosinophilic cytoplasmic globules in renal cell carcinoma have been reported but there has only been one report of papillary type. We report another case of papillary renal cell carcinoma with eosinophilic cytoplasmic globules, which is similar to a Mallory body but with different properties.
Key Words: Papillary renal cell carcinoma; Cytoplasmic inclusion
