Recent advances in genetics and pathology have allowed description of several new histological subtypes of renal cell carcinoma (RCC) as well as better characterization of other rare subtypes. We herein present a comprehensive review of taxonomy, epidemiology, pathology, imaging findings, and natural history of a wide spectrum of rare subtypes of RCCs that individually constitute >1% of all the RCCs.
