A Rare Entity on Paediatric RCC with Sarcomatoid Variation

Wilms’ tumour is the most common type of malignant kidney mass in children. The papillary subtype of RCC is the most frequent in this age range. Sarcomatoid variant is found in 5% of adult RCC cases, however it is extremely uncommon in children. In the management of paediatric RCC, there is no therapy protocol.

The purpose of this paper is to discuss a case of a 10-year-old child who presented with an asymptomatic left flank tumour.

The following is a case of a 10-year-old female who appeared with a mass on her left side. On histological analysis, radi- cal nephrectomy revealed clear cell carcinoma with sarcomatoid variant.

Conclusion: Children with a sarcomatoid variant can develop RCC. More study and long-term follow-up is needed, however, before a treatment plan and prognostication criteria can be devised.
