Chromophobic renal carcinoma is a rare subtype of RCC, usually seen in the fifth decade and accounts for 5% of kidney tumors. The incidence of this type of tumor is more increased in women than in men. The majority of chromophobic carcinomas are diagnosed at an early stage, and they have a good prognosis compared to other malignant kidney tumors. We report in this article a case of renal carcinoma with chromophobic cells with a lipoma sarcomatous component.
