In 2016, World Health Association (WHO) published the revised classification of urogenital system. In this context, multilocular cystic renal cell carcinoma (MCRCC) diagnosis was altered by the terminology as multilocular Cystic Renal Neoplasm of Low Malignant Potential (MCRN-LMP) with ICD code-8316/1.
In this mini review we discussed the justification and need of such alteration and the background behind this; in view we published the article on MCRCC in 2011.
