Current Management of Fetal and Neonatal Renal Tumors

Author(s): Michael Berger, Dietrich von Schweinitz.

Abstract:

Fetal and neonatal renal tumors are rare. Nevertheless, in-depth understanding of their features can lead to early recognition and appropriate treatment, ultimately benefiting outcome. Despite the many obvious similarities, important distinctions exist between these tumors and their counterparts in older children. Likewise, some important distinctions exist between fetal tumors on the one hand and neonatal tumors on the other. In this article, we review the pertinent features of fetal and neonatal renal tumors and specifically point out the important individualities in their clinical management.

Keywords: Fetal renal tumors, fetal tumors, neonatal tumors.
