|Histological features||Atypical tubules or angulated glands around the coagulative necrotic foci, irregularly infiltrate the renal parenchyma with a prominent interstitial growth pattern; Tumor cells have moderate to abundant eosinophilic or clear cytoplasm and large hyperchromatic nuclei with high nuclear grade||Coagulative necrosis with the contour of the necrotic tissue with no cellular atypical features|
