Successful Treatment of a Child with Advanced Stage Renal Cell Carcinoma

Serhan Küpeli, Bilgehan Yalçın, Münevver Büyükpamukçu.

Abstract
Treatment of renal cell carcinoma (RCC) in children is based on an extensive surgery. Radical nephrectomy with lymph node dissection is sufficient for most of the stage I-II tumors. However, in advanced disease some different management strategies have been defined including immunotherapy. We present a 9-year-old girl with advanced stage RCC, inoperable at the time of diagnosis and successfully treated with interferon-alpha after operation.

Key words: renal cell carcinoma, treatment, interferon alpha, children
