Current Management of Fetal and Neonatal Renal Tumors
Dietrich von Schweinitz.
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.
