The 5th meeting of an informal club „Kidney Tumor Friends“ will be held this year in Plzeň, Czech Republic again.
We have changed the format of the meeting this year to lectures and slide seminars (multihead microscope). Lectures will focus mainly on diagnostic problems in general GU pathology with emphasis on rare and new renal, urothelial, prostatic, and testicular tumors and pseudotumors. Due to the limited capacity of the auditorium, registration will be limited to a maximum of 120 participants. The slide seminar will be limited to a maximum of 29 participants.
Accommodation will be not provided by organizers, suggestions for hotels in Plzen will be posted on our webpage as well as basic information about the location of the meeting and about the city of Plzen (

We are aware of the current pandemic COVID situation. So far, seems that October could be safe, however, we can´t guarantee this date. In- case, that meeting will be postponed, we will announce a new date as soon as possible.
We are looking forward to welcoming you to Plzeň, Czech Republic.
Prof. MUDr. Ondřej Hes, PhD. and Prof. MUDr. Michal Michal
