Sarcome à cellules fusiformes du rein de l’adulte : A propos d’un cas

ConclusionLe SCCR, bien qu’il soit connu comme étant de mauvais pronostic, peut être guérri.AbstractIntroductionRenal sarcoma is an exceptional malignant tumor in adults. It is characterized by an aggressive disease course marked by a high rate of recurrence and mortality.ObservationWe report a case of renal spindle cell sarcoma in a 69 years old patient. A right nephrectomy was performed. There was no additional treatment. It was not noted recurrence with a decline of 8 months.ConclusionThe SCCR, although it is known as a poor prognosis, can be treated.

We describe an 18F-FDG PET/CT findings of a 28-year-old man who presented with left renal mass with inferior vena cava thrombus, which turned out to be primary Ewing sarcoma on histopathology specimen post left nephrectomy.

We report the case of a 15-year-old girl presenting with distended abdomen, left flank pain, and a history of weight loss. Computed tomography showed a large tumor involving the left kidney that was initially diagnosed as renal cell carcinoma. She underwent exploratory open laparotomy and left radical nephrectomy followed by chemotherapy and showed good response. Histology of the resected tumor revealed features of Ewing's sarcoma of the kidney which was confirmed by molecular studies. This disease is rare, particularly in the pediatric population, and this report will help better understand the potential disease course an...

ConclusionMalignant EAML, although rare, does exist. Thus, besides evaluations required for ruling out the diagnosis of renal sarcomas, surgeons must follow patients after total nephrectomy for possible recurrence. Benign cases can be completely cured by surgery and do not show recurrence at the end of the follow-up period.

We report a 3 day old female who was referred with a congenital abdominal mass with a background history of polyhydramnios antenatally and preterm delivery at 35 weeks. Imaging studies showed a right renal mass involving the mid and lower pole of the kidney. The neonate underwent a right radical nephrectomy and histopathology confirmed the mass as a classic sub-type of CMN.

CONCLUSION: We firstly report bilateral renal involvement of ES/PNET in the English medical literature. Physicians dealing with pediatric renal mass should be alert about the high mortality rate in children with MRT, MBN and ES/PNET; and should plan a substantial management plan for NWRT.

We present here the case of a 77-year-old man who was incidentally found to have a huge right renal mass on computed tomography. Radical nephrectomy was performed. Pathological diagnosis was MFH arising from the renal capsule. We used Ion AmpliSeq Cancer Hotspot Panel version 2 primers to perform gene mutation screening. We detected 13 mutations in 11 hotspot oncogenes (CSF1R, FGFR3, KDR, APC, PDGFRA, TP53, FLT3, ERBB4, KIT, STK11, RET), but these were not matched to driver mutations.

CONCLUSIONS: In urinary tumors, the prostate hemangiopericytoma is a rare entity. Currently, neoadjuvant chemotherapy is not established as treatment for these tumors. For other sarcomas neoadyuvant treatment has good response. In our case, a good result was obtained with neoadjuvant chemotheraphy before surgery. However, a greater number of cases are necessary to establish the use of neoadjuvant chemotherapy in urinary hemangiopericytomas. PMID: 31475682 [PubMed - in process]
