Xp11.2 translocation cell carcinoma represents a particular neoplasia with advanced stage at diagnosis, complex morphology and unpredictable progression. We describe five different scenarios involving patients with ages ranging from 7 to 79 years old, different tumor morphology and therapy management, focusing on prevalent features of this cancer. Diagnosis was assessed using the validated methods: Immunohistochemistry for TFE3 and break-apart FISH assay. Four out of five cases were T3 stage at presentation, with high grade nuclei on microscopy. All tumors displayed a papillary, nested and solid mixed architecture, while 3/5 associated psammoma bodies and hyaline nodules. One case showed rhabdoid differentiation. Prognosis was independent of tumor size or nuclear grade. Three patients are currently free of disease from their last periodical examination. The younger patient had an adrenal recurrence two years following the diagnosis. Unfortunately, one patient succumbed to cancer within 14 months. Adjuvant treatment didn’t prove significant efficacy.
