A new small group of renal cell carcinoma (RCC), occurring in children and young adults, has been described as characterized by t(6;11)(p21;q13).


- TFEB-associated renal cell carcinoma (RCC)

  • in children and young adults
  • in adults (17285572)

- TFEB-associated HMB45+ renal cell carcinoma (RCC)

Molecular biology

- TFEB/MALAT1 fusion gene by t(6;11)(p21;q13)
