  • [Title] [Nephroblastoma in children aged less than 6 months at diagnosis].
  • We present the results of treatment of kidney tumours in newborns and infants aged less than 6 months, in the years 1993-2000, from the Nephroblastoma Committee of the Polish Paediatric Group of Solid Tumours (PPGGL).
  • We have analysed the diagnostic and treatment results in the group of 31 children aged 0 to 6 months.
  • The accuracy of diagnosis based on imaging studies was 97%.
  • Only in one child the initial diagnosis of kidney tumour was not confirmed; cystic degeneration of kidney was finally established.
  • The tumours removed during surgery were small, with average size 213 cm3, and in half of the cases the size of the tumour did not exceed 165 cm3.
  • Primary complete excision of the tumour was performed in 21 children (67.7%).
  • In 10 cases histopathology confirmed mesoblastic nephroma, in 19 cases nephroblastoma and in 2 cases sarcoma clarocellulare.
  • In 10 infants (32.2%) with nephroblastoma delayed surgery preceded by chemotherapy was performed.
  • Indications for initial preoperative chemotherapy comprised: tumour in a single kidney, tumour in a horseshoe kidney, preoperative diagnostic biopsy of the tumour and large tumour in neonates older than 3 months.
  • In almost 70% of the children the stage of advancement was low (stage I and IIN-).
  • The tolerance of reduced chemotherapy by the infants was good. AS was 100%.
  • ESF for the 19 children registered for nephroblastoma between 1993 and 1996 for all stages of advancement and types of histology was 94.75%.
  • CONCLUSIONS:. 1) Mesoblastic nephroma and low risk nephroblastoma are the most common tumours in children within the first three years of life.
  • 2) The results of treatment of nephroblastoma in the youngest children (below 6 months of age) are the most favourable and represent world standards.3) Surgical complications in children operated primarily for nephroblastoma indicate the need of performing such operations in academic centres, specialised in newborn surgery.
  • 4) In infants with extensive kidney tumours older than 3 months, primarily considered as inoperative, individual induction chemotherapy should be taken into account.

  • [Title] SIOP treatment guidelines for renal tumours in small infants: fact or fantasy?
  • AIMS: Since as far back as 1980, SIOP (Société Internationale d>>Oncologie Pédiatrique) have advocated primary nephrectomy (PN) only for unilateral renal tumours in patients </=6 months of age.
  • Patients aged 7-12 months have been pre-treated with chemotherapy before nephrectomy is performed.
  • METHODS: Retrospective analysis of 67 patients under 12 months of age (1969-1995) with a unilateral renal tumour at diagnosis was carried out.
  • Demographics, pathology, staging and treatment variables were analysed.
  • RESULTS: Of 67 patients, 39 were male and 28 female.
  • Twenty-six (39%) infants were 0-6 months of age (group A) and 41 (61%) were 7-12 months old (group B).
  • In group A there were five patients (19%) with congenital mesoblastic nephroma (CMN), out of which one was still-born and therefore received no treatment, and 21 patients with a unilateral Wilms>> tumour (WT).
  • Fourteen of the 25 patients (56%) were treated with PN, including four patients with CMN.
  • In group B there was one patient (2%) with CMN and 40 patients with WT.
  • The percentage of pre-treated patients in group B increased after changing the protocol in 1980 to 81%.
  • In the age group included in the SIOP studies the protocol had been used significantly more often compared to the group included in the guidelines only.
  • The known excellent survival rate justifies a primary nephrectomy approach in the youngest age group, however, in cases of a large tumour, pre-operative chemotherapy in reduced doses may still be considered.
  • In our study fewer CMN were found (19%) than reported in the SIOP studies (20-70%), most likely due to a low registration rate, as a consequence of excluding this very young age group (0-6 months) from the SIOP protocol.

  • [Title] Hepatic lobectomies in children: experience of a center in the light of changing management of malignant liver tumors.
  • Hepatic resection is the main treatment modality for hepatic tumors in childhood.
  • Advances in diagnostic technique, preoperative preparation, surgical technique, and postoperative management increased the success rate.
  • The aim of this study is to report our experience in hepatic lobectomy, which is relatively rare procedure in childhood.
  • Age, gender, diagnosis, physical examination findings, results of preoperative laboratory investigations, radiological examination, resectability criteria, preoperative biopsies, chemotherapies, radiotherapies, postoperative pathological results, incisions, operation technique, intraoperative transfusions, drains used, antibiotic prophylaxes, and intraoperative and postoperative complications were evaluated for all patients.
  • Out of 25 patients with hepatic tumor seven patients with hepatoblastoma and four patients with hepatocellular carcinoma were given 5.7 +/- 0.3 cycles of chemotherapy before the operation.
  • Right lobectomy (n = 12), left lobectomy (n = 5), extended left lobectomy (n = 4), and extended right lobectomy (n = 3) and right lobectomy with enucleation of two masses from left lobe (n = 1) were performed.
  • Intraoperative blood transfusion of 30.7+/-6.0 ml/kg body weight was necessary.
  • Pathological examination of resected tumors revealed hepatoblastoma (n=11), mesenchymal hamartoma (n = 5), hepatocellular carcinoma (n = 4), hemangioendothelioma (n=1), malignant mesenchymal tumor (n = 1), hemangioma (n = 1), cyst adenoma (n = 1), and metastasis of cellular mesoblastic nephroma (n = 1).
  • Patients were observed in the intensive care unit for 3.4 +/- 0.3 days.
  • Safe hepatic resections with acceptable blood loss can be performed by a technique relying on good anatomic dissection and surgical control.

  • [Title] Genotypic and gene expression studies in congenital melanocytic nevi: insight into initial steps of melanotumorigenesis.
  • Large congenital melanocytic nevi (CMNs) are said to have a higher propensity to malignant transformation compared with acquired nevi.
  • We have performed genotypic (karyotype, fluorescence in situ hybridization, and mutational analyses) and differential expression studies on a large cohort of medium (n=3) and large (n=24) CMN.
  • Mutational screening showed a high frequency of NRAS mutations in our series (19/27 cases, 70%), whereas BRAF mutations were less common (4/27 cases, 15%).
  • Differential did not show significant alterations of cellular processes such as cell proliferation, cell migration/invasion, angiogenesis, apoptosis, and immune/inflammatory responses.
  • Furthermore, the observed alterations linked to chemoresistance might partially account for the well-known inefficacy of chemotherapy in malignant melanoma.

  • Presentation is usually as a flank mass or as a coincidental finding on either antenatal or postnatal ultrasound.
  • Mesoblastic nephroma is the most common tumour to be found at this age, but Wilms' tumour and other malignant and benign tumours occur.
  • Cross sectional imaging is useful to delineate the extent of the disease.
  • Given the low malignant potential of these tumours, treatment is by radical nephroureterctomy, except in cases with bilateral disease or syndromic patients with a high incidence of metachronous tumours.
  • Chemotherapy is rarely indicated.
  • Survival is generally excellent for all tumour types in this age group, the exception being malignant rhabdoid tumour of the kidney which may have metastases at presentation.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • METHODS: Pathologic reports from all tumor nephrectomies or open renal biopsies performed at a single institution from September 1999 to June 2005 were analyzed.
  • Sixty-eight had Wilms' tumor (WT) and 24 had an nWT.
  • The nWT group included congenital mesoblastic nephroma (5), clear cell sarcoma (4), neuroblastoma (4), renal cell carcinoma (4), lymphoma (2), angiomyolipoma (2), teratoma (1), hemangioma (1), and renal epithelial tumor (1).
  • Sensitivity, specificity, positive predictive value, and negative predictive value for computed tomography (CT) determining a diagnosis of WT were 0.92, 0.55, 0.84, and 0.73, respectively.
  • The CT reports explicitly stated a potential diagnosis in 89% of cases, with a diagnostic accuracy of 82%.
  • Preoperative imaging is of limited value in differentiating these tumors.
  • These data have significant implications for parental counseling, surgical plan, and the choice of neoadjuvant chemotherapy and argue in favor of obtaining a tissue diagnosis before instituting therapy.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • AIMS: To investigate the presence and prognostic relevance of KIT expression in paediatric renal tumours, and to determine whether receptor overexpression is associated with gene amplification and/or mutation.
  • METHODS: Immunohistochemistry without antigen retrieval for CD117 was carried out on tissue microarrays consisting of 274 Wilms' tumours, 13 clear cell sarcomas of the kidney (CCSK), 10 mesoblastic nephromas (MN), and 7 rhabdoid tumours of the kidney (RTK).
  • RESULTS: Only 8/200 (4.0%) Wilms' tumours exhibited any degree of moderate-strong KIT staining in any of their assessable cell types.
  • This small group of KIT-positive tumours had a shorter time to relapse (p = 0.0044, log-rank test).
  • CONCLUSIONS: KIT overexpression in rare in Wilms' tumours, although does appear to confer a worse prognosis, in particular for patients primarily treated with preoperative chemotherapy.
  • CCSKs are associated with an increased expression of KIT, however, in the absence of gene amplification and/or activating mutation.
  • The potential of anti-KIT therapeutic strategies in the treatment of paediatric renal tumours appears to be limited.

  • Nephroblastoma is the most common kidney tumor in Polish children.
  • MATERIAL: 500 pts with nephroblastoma and 33 of non-Wilms: CMN, RCC,CSSK, RTK and others tumors were registered, mean age 4.5 years between 1993 till 2002.
  • Stage: CS I--148, CS II--191, CS III--114, CS IV--51, CS V--29 pts.
  • All pts with nephroblastoma were treated according to the first national PPGGL 01-92 protocol with pre-operative chemotherapy (ACT, VCR) for CS I-III and ACT, VCR, DOX in pts of stage IV, over the age of 6 months.
  • Pre-operative chemotherapy was done to 93.8% pts.
  • RESULTS: Radical nephrectomy post pre op chemotherapy was performed in 451 (98%) pts over 6 months and in 44 (8.2%) infants less than 6 months with nephroblastoma.
  • Partial nephrectomy for unilateral tumor post preoperative chemotherapy was made in 6 (1.2%).
  • The results of treatment of 33 pts with non-Wilms renal tumors have improved lately.
  • CONCLUSIONS: The use of systemic neoadjuvant chemotherapy in all pts over 6 months according to the recommendation of SIOP Nephroblastoma protocol (01-92) produced tumor shrinkage, facilitated complete surgical nephrectomy, and was very advantageous in the treatment of renal tumors in children.
  • The results of treatment of non-Wilms tumor have also improved thanks to introduction of new and more aggressive regimens of chemotherapy.

  • In the present study, anti-proliferative effects of dietary polyphenolic compounds have been observed and demonstrated the strong anticancer efficacy of curcumin (CMN), an active constituent of dietary spice (turmeric) using human leukemia cancer cell line.
  • CMN inhibited the proliferation of K562 leukemic cells by induction of apoptosis.
  • The current study demonstrated synergy with combination of drug therapy, and suggested that combination of ferulic acid and cisplatin synergistically inhibited cellular proliferation.
  • Cytotoxic synergy was observed independent of the sequence of addition of two drugs to cultured cells.
  • The synergized growth inhibitory effect with cisplatin was probably associated with G2-M arrest in cell cycle progression.
  • These findings suggested that among the cinnamoyl compounds, CMN was most potent and FER appeared to be a better modulating agent on human malignant cell line.

  • [Title] A 23-year experience with malignant renal tumors in infancy and childhood.
  • A retrospective analysis of 77 children treated between 1974 and 1996 was undertaken to evaluate morbidity and the evolution of therapy.
  • A Wilms' tumor (WT) was present in 73 children.
  • 74% of patients (pats.) with WT survived (54 of 73 pats.).
  • Among patients with Wilms' tumors (WT), nephroblastoma (NB) of intermediate risk predominated (73%; 46 of 63 pats.).
  • Low-risk tumors occurred in 5 of 63 children (8%; mesoblastic nephroma 3, cystic partially diff.
  • High-risk WT were diagnosed in 12 of 63 patients (19%) (NB with anaplasia 10, clear cell sarcoma 1, malignant rhabdoid tumor 1).
  • We observed 3 children of school age with renal carcinoma and one patient with an intrarenal neuroblastoma.
  • The risk for relapses was 2.6-fold higher in patients with high-risk WT compared to the standard risk group.
  • Stages were re-evaluated according to SIOP 93-01.
  • Comparing relapse-free survival of stages I, II and III, respectively, there was a reduced survival rate for stage III (p=0.019).
  • According to the SIOP/GPOH protocol in 1989, the regimen was switched from primary surgery to preoperative chemotherapy without biopsy in 1989 (11 pats.).
  • In 3 patients preoperative diagnosis by means of imaging failed.
  • During preoperative chemotherapy a venous occlusive disease of the liver occurred in 2 patients.
  • Preoperative chemotherapy led to an impressive tumor shrinkage in the majority of patients.
  • 2 patients of the preoperative group died (focal anaplastic NB).
  • In our experience, reduction of tumor volume due to preoperative chemotherapy facilitates tumor removal by surgery and may prevent tumor spillage and the deleterious effects of radiation in young children.
  • Surgery without delay is necessary if the diagnosis is unclear or the tumor fails to respond to preoperative chemotherapy.

  • [Title] Two structurally distinct inhibitors of glycogen synthase kinase 3 induced centromere positive micronuclei in human lymphoblastoid TK6 cells.
  • Glycogen synthase kinase 3 (GSK3) is an attractive novel pharmacological target.
  • Inhibition of GSK3 is recently regarded as one of the viable approaches to therapy for Alzheimer's disease, cancer, diabetes mellitus, osteoporosis, and bipolar mood disorder.
  • Here, we have investigated the aneugenic potential of two potent and highly specific inhibitors of GSK3 by using an in vitro micronucleus test with human lymphoblastoid TK6 cells.
  • One inhibitor was a newly synthesized maleimide derivative and the other was a previously known aminopyrimidine derivative.
  • One hundred micronuclei (MN) of each were analyzed using centromeric DNA staining with fluorescence in situ hybridization.
  • Both the two structurally distinct compounds induced centromere-positive micronuclei (CMN).
  • Calculated from the frequency of MN cells and the percentage of CMN, CMN cell incidence after treatment with the maleimide compound at 1.2 microM, 2.4 microM, and 4.8 microM was 11.6, 27.7, and 56.3 per 1000 cells, respectively; the negative control was 4.5.
  • CMN cell incidence after the treatment with the aminopyrimidine compound at 1.8 microM, 3.6 microM, and 5.4 microM was 6.7, 9.8 and 17.2 per 1000 cells, respectively.
  • The frequency of CMN cells correlated well with mitotic cell incidence after treatment with either compound.
  • These results lend further support to the hypothesis that the inhibition of GSK3 activity affects microtubule function and exhibits an aneugenic mode of action.

  • [Title] Congenital mesoblastic nephroma: report of a Case with review of the most significant literature.
  • AIMS AND BACKGROUND: Congenital mesoblastic nephroma (CMN) is a rare pediatric tumor of the kidney with the highest peak of incidence during the first 3 postnatal months.
  • It has previously been confused with Wilms' tumor (which, on the contrary, is rare during the first six months of age and is still considered a histogenetic congener).
  • CMN almost always has a favourable prognosis.
  • Therefore, CMN needs to be correctly diagnosed and differentiated from other pediatric renal neoplasms.
  • Two morphological subtypes are currently distinguished histologically: the classical or leiomyomatous type and the atypical or cellular type.
  • Mixed forms with a combination of the two patterns are also on record.
  • Recurrence and even tumor-related death have been described in the literature and always related to the atypical form or to the mixed form, particularly in patients aged more than 3 months and in those cases in which the surgical removal was not complete.
  • Opinions concerning post-surgical clinical management, especially in regard to adjuvant therapy, are not unanimous.
  • METHODS: A case of CMN, predominantly of the classical histological subtype diagnosed in a baby with a follow-up of 6 years, is herein presented.
  • The tumor was discovered at birth and surgically removed after one month.
  • Since the tumor showed a high mitotic index (one of the characteristics of the cellular subtype) and the perirenal fat was focally involved with the tumor, the possibility of giving adjuvant chemotherapy was considered.
  • Flow cytometric analysis was also performed which showed a diploid DNA content of neoplastic cells.
  • RESULTS: The tumor was completely removed, surgical margins were free histologically, and no clear-cut histological features of the atypical subtype were noted.
  • Consequently no additional therapy was given.
  • Six years after surgery the patient is developing well and is free of disease.
  • CONCLUSIONS: CMN almost always pursues a benign clinical course if diagnosed under three months of age and if totally surgically excised independent of histological type.
  • Criteria for management of atypical cases are not unanimous in regard to the benefit of additional therapy after surgery.

  • [Title] The cytological diagnosis of paediatric renal tumours.
  • Fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) is used for preoperative diagnosis of paediatric renal tumours, especially in centres where preoperative chemotherapy is advocated in Wilms' tumour.
  • This review focuses on salient cytological features in specific paediatric renal tumours, the approach to resolving a differential diagnosis and the role of ancillary methods in diagnosis of paediatric renal tumours.
  • Crucial differential diagnoses include distinguishing: Wilms' tumour from benign tumours in the kidney like multicystic nephroma or congenital mesoblastic nephroma; aggressive non-Wilms' tumours of kidney like rhabdoid tumour of kidney; and Wilms' tumour from other paediatric round cell sarcomas like neuroblastoma, non-Hodgkin lymphoma etc.
  • An approach based on classifying smears according to their cellular patterns as triphasic, round cell, spindle cell or epithelioid cell type assists in classifying paediatric renal tumours on cytology.
  • Immunocytochemistry for WT1, cytokeratin, synaptophysin, leucocyte common antigen and MIC2 will aid in evaluating round cell tumours in the renal region, while WT1, bcl2, vimentin and desmin will be useful for spindle cell tumours in that region.
  • A checklist of common tumours in a particular age group, relevant clinical information, awareness of distinctive and overlapping cytological features, and appropriate use of immunocytochemistry with cytogenetics go a long way in ensuring an accurate cytological diagnosis.
  • Used judiciously, FNAC is as effective a tool as a core biopsy for preoperative diagnosis of paediatric renal tumours, and with experience a 92% accuracy rate can be achieved.

  • PURPOSE: Epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) is a receptor tyrosine kinase overexpressed in a variety of human malignancies, against which targeted therapies have shown efficacy in lung and brain tumors.
  • EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN: We screened a series of 307 pediatric renal tumors for EGFR expression by immunohistochemistry and gene amplification by chromogenic in situ hybridization.
  • In identifying a striking predilection for certain tumor types, we further analyzed the clear cell sarcomas of the kidney (CCSK) for mutations in EGFR and PTEN.
  • RESULTS: Although only 23 of 177 (13.0%) nonanaplastic Wilms' tumors were EGFR positive, 4 of 11 (36.4%) anaplastic tumors showed receptor overexpression.
  • In addition, 5 of 9 (55.6%) mesoblastic nephromas and 12 of 12 (100%) CCSKs were strongly immunoreactive for EGFR.
  • In studying the CCSKs in more detail, we identified gene amplification in 1 of 12 (8.3%) cases and a somatic T790M EGFR mutation in a further case.
  • Identification of factors predictive of poor response to targeted therapy, including the drug resistance T790M mutation, may provide a rationale for upfront trials with irreversible inhibitors of EGFR in children with these tumors.

  • [Title] Results of the SIOP 93-01/GPOH trial and study for the treatment of patients with unilateral nonmetastatic Wilms Tumor.
  • BACKGROUND: The treatment of Wilms Tumor is integrated into clinical trials since the 1970's.
  • In contrast to the National Wilms Tumor Study Group (NWTSG) the SIOP trials and studies largely focus on the issue of preoperative therapy to facilitate surgery of a shrunken tumor and to treat metastasis as early as possible.
  • PATIENTS AND METHODS: In the SIOP 93-01/GPOH trial and study 1 020 patients with a newly diagnosed renal tumor were registered.
  • 847 of them had a histological proven Wilms Tumor, of whom 637 were unilateral localized, and 173 tumors had an other histology [40 congenital mesoblastic nephroma (CMN), 51 clear cell sarcoma (CCSK), 24 rhabdoid tumor (RTK) and 58 other tumors].
  • Preoperative chemotherapy in benign tumors was given to 1.3 % of the patients.
  • The main objective of the trial was the randomized question, if the postoperative two drug chemotherapy for stage I in intermediate risk or anaplasia can be reduced from conventional 3 courses to an experimental 1 course without loss of efficacy.
  • RESULTS: 519 patients with unilateral nonmetastatic Wilms did receive preoperative chemotherapy.
  • The histology in this group of patients was of intermediate risk in 469 (90 %) patients, 14 (3 %) tumors were low risk and 36 (7 %) high risk.
  • The stage distribution of the tumors was stage I in 315 (61 %), stage II N- in 126 (24 %), stage II N+ in 25 (5 %) and stage III in 36 (7 %) patients.
  • In 17 (3 %) patients the tumor stage remained unclear.
  • Tumor volume was measured in 487 patients before and in 402 after preoperative chemotherapy.
  • The median tumor volume did shrink from 353 to 126 ml.
  • The event free survival (EFS) after 5 years was 91 % for all patients with unilateral Wilms tumor without distant metastasis.
  • Randomisation was done in 43.7 % for stage I patients and there was no difference in EFS for both treatment arms (90 versus 91 %).
  • The EFS is identical for patients with stage I and II N- (0.92), as well as for stage II N+ and III (0.82).
  • The tumor volume after chemotherapy is a prognostic factor for intermediate risk tumors with the exception of epithelial and stromal predominant tumors.
  • These two subtypes often present as large tumors, they do not shrink during preoperative chemotherapy but they still have an excellent prognosis.
  • On the other hand the prognosis of patients with blastemal predominant subtype after preoperative chemotherapy is worse than in any other patient group of intermediate risk tumors.
  • There are less blastemal predominant tumors compared to primary surgery, but they are chemotherapeutic resistant selected by the preoperative chemotherapy.
  • CONCLUSION: Patients with unilateral Wilms tumor without metastasis have an excellent prognosis.
  • The post-operative chemotherapy in stage I can be reduced to 4 weeks without worsening treatment outcome.
  • The reduction of the tumor volume could be identified as a helpful marker for stratification of post-operative treatment.
  • Post-chemotherapy blastemal predominant subtype of Wilms tumor has to be classified as high risk tumor.
  • Focal anaplasia has a better prognosis than diffuse anaplasia and will be classified as intermediate risk tumor.

  • Small round-cell tumors (SRCTs), with malignant cell components measuring 10 m or less in diameter with scanty cytoplasm in alcohol-fixed smears, pose a diagnostic challenge at fine-needle aspiration cytology (FNAC), especially when they are situated in and around the kidney and need facilities such as electron microscopy, immunohistochemistry, tissue culture, and cytogenetics for their subtyping.
  • A precise cytodiagnosis of SRCTs is important because a definite diagnosis is mandatory in preoperative diagnostic workup for presurgical chemotherapy in these cases.
  • With this view in mind, an attempt has been made to diagnose SRCTs in the region of the kidney based on cytomorphology and morphometry alone so as to facilitate its diagnosis in a simple cytology laboratory of a developing country where facilities for auxiliary techniques are not easily available.
  • Of 2,028 abdominal aspirates in a 12-yr period, 36 SRCTs were diagnosed in the region of the kidney by correlating with histology, radiology, and clinical features.
  • An aspirate with preponderant malignant round cells that were larger or double the size of red blood cells in air-dried smears or measured less than 10 micro in diameter in alcohol-fixed smears was considered as a small blue-cell tumor.
  • Twenty-one were diagnosed as Wilms' tumor (WT), 10 were diagnosed as neuroblastoma (NB), 3 were ganglioneuroblastoma (GNB), 1 was a cellular congenital mesoblastic nephroma (CMN), and 1 was an adrenocortical carcinoma (ACC).
  • Aspirates from CMN and ACC were considered as simulators/mimickers of SRCT because they had superficial resemblance to SRCT and their differentiating cytomorphological features observed at histology were too subtle to be noted at cytology.
  • The latter were appreciated only on retrospective analysis after histological confirmation.Thus, morphometry in correlation with cytology, clinical history, physical findings, and radiological data is helpful in guided FNA for a definite diagnosis of SRCT in the region of the kidney.
  • One needs to keep in mind the mimickers of small round-cell lesions at this anatomic site.

  • OBJECTIVE: To determine the frequency and distribution of primary renal tumors diagnosed in a pediatric oncology unit in children younger than 1 year and identify their clinical and histopathological characteristics, the treatment used, and outcomes.
  • MATERIAL AND METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed the medical records of infants with primary tumors of the kidney diagnosed between January 1972 and February 2003.
  • RESULTS: A total of 137 tumors were diagnosed in our unit during the period studied.
  • The most prevalent tumor in this age group was Wilms' tumor (WT) in 15 patients, followed by mesoblastic nephroma (MN) in 9 patients and rhabdoid tumor in 1 patient.
  • The mean age at diagnosis of WT was 4.8 months (range: 1 day-11 months), with a median of 5.03 months.
  • The median age at diagnosis of MN was 1 day (range: 1 day-3 months).
  • Presenting symptoms consisted of abdominal mass in 20 patients, hematuria in 4 patients and intestinal pseudo-occlusion (MN) in 1 patient.
  • High blood pressure was found in 12 of the 25 patients.
  • Among the 15 WT, 9 were stage I, 1 was stage II, one was stage III, 2 were stage IV, and 1 was stage V.
  • One patient died before surgery.
  • Overall survival at 5 years was 0.67 (SE 0.12) for WT and 0.89 (SE 0.1) for MN, respectively, with a mean follow-up of 290 months.
  • CONCLUSIONS: MN was more frequent than WT in infants aged less than 6 months.
  • The first-line therapy in these patients is surgery since this type of tumor shows little chemosensitivity and chemotherapy is poorly tolerated in infants.

  • [Title] Surgical complications in the treatment of Wilms' tumor.
  • We present our data on the treatment of Wilms' Tumor (WT) with an emphasis on both the positive effect and the adverse effect of preoperative chemotherapy with regard to surgical intervention.
  • 57 % received preoperative chemotherapy (ChTx) and 43 % were operated on primarily.
  • After preoperative ChTx 54 % of the cases were regrouped as stage I, whereas after primary operation 46 % of the patients were grouped as stage I, thus indicating a downstaging with preoperative ChTx.
  • In 8 % of the patients with preoperative chemotherapy intraoperative complications occurred with a rupture of the tumor in 1 case.
  • In contrast, there were intraoperative complications in 25 % of the patients with a primary operation with rupture of the tumor in 3 cases.
  • 1 child (1.5 %) was treated with chemotherapy who did not have a Wilms' tumor but a benign nephroma (CMN).
  • 3 cases had a clear cell sarcoma (CCSK) and in one case histology revealed a rhabdoid tumor (MRTK).
  • In one case of CCSK only histology of the metastases disclosed the correct diagnosis.
  • Irrespective of the known adverse effects such as changing tumor histology, which may affect the correct staging, and the remaining risk of an initial inadequate treatment, our data show that the regimen of preoperative chemotherapy as proposed by the SIOP study should not be abandoned.
  • However, the relatively small number of our patients does not allow a significant statement to be made but confirms the results of past SIOP studies.
