Abstract  Renal tumors are the third most frequent genitourinary tract tumors, accounting for 2-6% of all malignancies. Renal cell carcinoma (RCC), clear cell type is the most common variant of renal epithelial tumors, accounting for 2% of all malignancies and about 70% of RCCs. It occurs primarily in adult seen in age group of sixth to seventh decades. Renal cell carcinoma, clear cell type has a male predominance of 2:1. Haematuria is the single most common presenting sign. Less than 10% of the cases present with classic triad of flank mass and pain. Fuhrman nuclear grade is considered to be independent prognostic factor in renal cell carcinomas which determines the patient outcome. This study is done to analyse the clear cell carcinomas with respect to their Fuhrman nuclear grade and morphological prognostic factors.

Keywords: Renal cell carcinoma, Fuhrman grade, prognosis.
