INTRODUCTION: Kidneys are vital organs of the body with multiple functions like excretory, acid base balance and maintenance of blood pressure. Renal parenchyma is mostly subjected to noxious insults but is last to respond. Simple nephrectomy is done for irreversibly damaged kidney. Most common indication for nephrectomy is chronic pyelonephritis. Aim of the study is to analyze the histopathological patterns of renal lesions and to analyze age and sex distribution. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The study included a total number of 70 cases, during a period of 2 years i.e., from October 2017 to September 2019. All renal biopsies and nephrectomy specimens received in pathology department, SVS Medical College, Mahabubnagar, Telangana, India were included in the study. RESULTS: In our study, 70 cases were analyzed. Out of which majority of the lesions (25.7 % ) were in the age group of 21-40 years and showed male preponderance (68.5 %). Present study showed chronic pyelonephritis being the most common non-neoplastic lesion. Among malignant tumors renal cell carcinoma was most common. CONCLUSION: The present study reveals various histological patterns of lesions in renal biopsies and nephrectomy specimens. Our study reveals that non-neoplastic lesions are more commonly encountered lesions.
