Birt-Hogg-Dube syndrome [OMIM #135150] is a rare autosomal dominant inherited disorder caused by a mutation in the FLCN gene located on chromosome 17p11.2, which acts as a tumour suppressor and probably interacts with mTOR and AMPK signalling pathways [1].

For example, in von Hippel-Lindau syndrome, (5) it appears that the incidence of pancreatic involvement by renal cell carcinoma is less than the general population, whereas in the setting of Birt-Hogg-Dube syndrome, (6) the scant data suggest that incidence may be the same as that in the general population.
Although these tumors may be sporadic, many are seen in patients with Birt-Hogg-Dube syndrome. (26,27) This syndrome can manifest with multifocal oncocytomas (oncocytosis) and chRCC and should be suggested by a pathologist when more than one lesion is present unilaterally or bilaterally.
