RENAL CELL CARCINOMA IN CHILDREN: A RARE ENTITY

Jawad Akhtar Gilani, Muhammad Iqbal, M. Rauf Khattak, Safoora Shahid

Abstract


We present a 15-years old young child primarily presented to general surgeon for abdominal mass
and gross haematuria. His detailed imaging studies and other relevant investigations revealed that
it is a case of Paediatric Renal Cell carcinoma (RCC), which was clinically not associated with
any of the known malignancies or syndromes. On detailed histo-pathological examination this was
reported as a special type of Pediatric RCC not fitting into clear cell, papillary, chromophobic,
oncocytoma or collecting duct RCC.
Keywords: RCC, VHL, IHC
