Papillary renal cell carcinoma: Report of a rare entity in childhood with review of the clinical management - Abstract

Division of Urology, Department of Surgery, University of Alberta, Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.


We present the case of a 9-year-old boy who presents with gross hematuria and is subsequently diagnosed with a papillary (type 1) renal cell carcinoma. Management of renal cell carcinoma in the pediatric population represents a unique challenge, owing to the potential for a genetic predisposition and screening. Herein we discuss novel discoveries with respect to pediatric renal cell carcinoma and their potential impact on screening.
