Abstract

The cytologic findings of a fine-needle aspiration biopsy of a renal cell adenocarcinoma with massive intracellular hemosiderin accumulation are described. These findings have not been previously illustrated in the cytology literature. These features could also be observed in fine-needle aspiration biopsies of renal cell adenocarcinoma metastases.
