Bilateral Wilms' tumor

Kullendorff, Carl-Magnus LU and Wiebe, Thomas LU (1999) In Pediatric Surgery International 15(1). p.46-49
Abstract
During a 16-year period, 49 children were treated for Wilms' tumor (WT); 7 were bilateral, 5 synchronous and 2 metachronous. The age at primary diagnosis was 6 months to 5 years (mean 2.4 years). All but 1 child received preoperative chemotherapy with tumor reduction. Unilateral nephrectomy was performed in 2 metachronous cases. In 3 synchronous WTs, the tumor was enucleated in 5 kidneys and a heminephrectomy was performed in 1 kidney with a double pelvis. Two children were not operated upon. At relapse in the contralateral kidney the tumor was enucleated. Three patients died of WT, 1 is alive with disease, and 3 are without evidence of disease. Renal salvage procedures were technically feasible without complications and are advocated to... (More)

Renal salvage procedures were technically feasible without complications and are advocated to preserve renal function. (Less)
