Fatma Fitouri, Yasmine Houas, Nizar Sassi, Sondes Sahli, Mourad Hamzaoui


This case report describes a neonatal Wilms’ tumour in a 20-day-old boy that was revealed in unusual circumstances. The infant was admitted to the intensive care unit with haemorrhagic shock and an abdominal mass. Following transfusion and stabilisation, scans showed a left kidney tumour with haemorrhage. The infant underwent a left ureteronephrectomy with reduced-dose chemotherapy. At the six-year follow-up examination he was free of recurrence and metastases.
