Comments P.215 2nd paragraph: "Renal medullary carcinoma (RMC) is a very rare malignancy that accounts for less than 1% of all renal neoplasms [primary source]. RMC exhibits a highly aggressive behavior and is usually seen among young men aged between 10 and 40 years. Most patients are young African-American men [ref 2]. RMC occurs in the right kidney of more than 75% of the patients. The reported patients were associated with sickle cell hemoglobinopathy, mainly with sickle cell trait and less frequently without sickle cell disease [ref 3]."
