BILATERAL TERATOID WILMS’ TUMOR IN A CHILD: A REPORT OF A RARE CASE AND REVIEW OF LITERATURE

Amezene Tadesse, Tatek Girma, Jakob Schneider

Abstract


Background: Teratoid Wilms’ tumour is a very rare histopathological variant of Wilms’ tumours. We report a case of a 1-year and 3month-old boy with this rare variant of Wilms’ tumour.

Case presentation: The boy presented with a bilateral flank swelling and significant weight loss. Bilateral nephron sparing surgery was performed with impression of bilaterl Wilms'Tumor. Histopathology report showed bilateral teratoid Wilms’ tumor.

Conclusion: The management of bilateral teratoid WT depends on the individual clinical scenario, the ultimate aim being tumor eradication with renal preservation through surgical intervention.
