Abstract

The aim of this case report is to discuss the clinicopathological features of a patient with a primary renal carcinoid tumor. We report on the clinical and pathological information of one case of a patient with a primary renal carcinoid tumor as well as review relative literature. The patient was diagnosed with a renal tumor when she received physical examination, and exhibited no positive symptoms. The diameter of tumor was 5 cm, the cross surface of the tumor was light yellow and firm, and the central part was soft with hemorrhage and necrosis. Immunohistochemical staining revealed strong and diffuse staining with synaptophysin, chromogranin A, and neuron-specific enolase. A primary renal carcinoid tumor is extremely rare. Surgical resection is a preferred therapeutic method.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 12 March 2016.
All research outputs
#3,789,798
of 7,382,271 outputs
Outputs from OncoTargets and therapy
#259
of 868 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#150,535
of 277,278 outputs
Outputs of similar age from OncoTargets and therapy
#26
of 59 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 7,382,271 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 28th percentile – i.e., 28% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 868 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 1.3. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 54% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 277,278 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 35th percentile – i.e., 35% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 59 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 38th percentile – i.e., 38% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
