Metastatic renal cell carcinoma in a child: 11-year disease-free survival following surgery.


A child with metastatic renal cell carcinoma (RCC) is presented. This case is unusual in that the patient has remained disease free for 11 years following surgery and only one course of chemotherapy prior to thoracotomy. The management of metastatic RCC is reviewed and the genetic mechanisms leading to its development briefly discussed.
