oncocytosis

(on'kō-sī-tō'sis),
a spectrum of changes in the kidneys harboring oncocytomas. It includes multifocal oncocytic transformation of renal tubules, which may undergo cystic transformation, and infiltration of neoplastic oncocytes among tubules.

In the first large series on hybrid tumors, Tickoo et al (13) reported on a group of patients with renal oncocytosis, some of whom developed tumors with hybrid morphologies.
In this regard, Brandwein and Huvos (1) found a history of radiation exposure in some of their cases, and Becker et al (14) described an age-dependent intracellular metabolic defect associated with mitochon driopathy as an explanation for the development of oncocytosis in 2 of their cases.
15) The WHO groups these tumors into three distinct categories: diffuse oncocytosis, multifocal nodular oncocytic hyperplasia (MNOH), and oncocytomas (benign and malignant).
1) These tumors are classified as one of three types: diffuse oncocytosis, focal adenomatous oncocvtic hyperplasia, and oncocytoma.
Oncocytomas may be multifocal or bilateral, and as many as 7% of cases may represent diffuse oncocytosis rather than a single mass.
