The occurrence of renal cell carcinoma (RCC) in Fabry disease (FD) is a rare event. We report a deep ultrastructural study of RCC in a patient with a previous histological diagnosis of FD. In order to highlight analogies and differences between the two histological samples, we used the nephrectomy specimen as a 'repeat biopsy', making a dynamic analysis of the evolution of the disease-related kidney damage. Secondly, a comparative ultrastructural analysis between non-neoplastic tissue and cancer demonstrated for the first time the presence of zebra bodies in the tumor cells. Finally, a hypothetical speculation about the relationship between the lysosomal accumulation, the oxidative damage and the genesis of the tumor was performed. The link connected the accumulation of glycosphingolipid globotriaosylceramide, characteristic of FD, with the expression of CD74 and macrophage migration inhibitory factor that may play an important role in tumorigenesis regulated by the Von Hippel-Lindau/hypoxia-inducible factor 1α pathway.
