Endolymphatic sac tumor misdiagnosed as metastatic renal cell carcinoma: Pitfalls in morphology and immunohistochemistry.

Endolymphatic sac tumor (ELST) is a rare disease that originates from the endolymphatic sac system of the inner ear. Being a low-grade malignant tumor, ELST has a mild morphology and is characterized by a slow but aggressive growth. Most clinicians and pathologists are unfamiliar with this disease. ELST can be misdiagnosed as metastatic renal cancer because of the similarity in morphology and expression of nephrogenic markers such as PAX8. The presented case of a 27-year-old man revealed that observing the characteristic location and confirming the absence of renal neoplasm to rule out the possibility of metastasis are critical for obtaining an accurate final diagnosis.
