Late Presentation of Wilms Tumor in a Patient with Hemihypertrophy after Normal Screening

Urology (Gold Journal) In Press - Wed, 02/10/2021 - 00:00
An identifiable genetic malformation or predisposition syndrome is present in 18% of Wilms tumor cases. Given this, children with conditions associated with a greater than 1% risk of developing Wilms tumor are recommended to have regular surveillance imaging with renal ultrasound until age 7. Seven years is the recommended screening duration because 95% of cases will occur by this age. We present a case of a child with isolated hemihypertrophy, associated with 5% risk of Wilms tumor, who presented with a tumor after the recommended screening, at age 9, brining into question the age cutoffs currently used.
