The patient, a 63-year-old male, sought medical attention due to unremitting haematuria and generalised weakness. Comprehensive work-up revealed a 2.5-cm diameter right renal mass on ultrasound. A sonographically guided FNA was performed at the same sitting. Examination of stained cytosmears showed predominantly pleomorphic spindled to ovoid cellularity, with high grade nuclear morphology, in addition to a few cells which were suggestive of conventional epithelial renal malignancy. A diagnosis of sarcomatoid renal cell carcinoma was made. Histopathology confirmed the cytologic impression. The features considered helpful in this cytodiagnosis are emphasized.
