Collecting duct carcinoma of the kidney is unique and rarely reported.It arises from the epithelium of the collecting tubules within the medulla and secondarily invades the renal cortex. The present article adds clinical data on a case which eluded the clinical diagnosis.In addition to the histo-logical features,immunohistochemical techniques which differentiate it from other renal cell carcinomas and infiltrating urothelial carcinomas have been highlighted.
