The second edition of this book, originally published in 1981, is the result of a collaborative effort of pathologists from 6 countries. It is more extensive than the first edition. Renal adenomas have been presented in more detail. Several new entities unrecognized in 1981 have been discussed including metanephric adenoma, chromophobe carcinoma, and renal medullary carcinoma. More extensive definition and discussion of nephroblastic lesions is given including mesoblastic nephroma and cystic nephroma. Two new entities are included: clear cell sarcoma and rhabdoid tumour. A list of miscellaneous tumours such as small cell carcinoma, ossifying renal tumour, renal hamartoma, and nephrogenic adenofibroma is also added. A number of new tumour-like lesions have been included. The text of the revised edition contains 145 colour photomicrographs.
