A 3 year old Indonesian boy presented with an abdominal mass that the parents had noticed a year ago. He was initially seen by a paediatric Surgeon at another private centre and referred to an adult Urologist who did certain imaging studies. The parents however chose to seek a second opinion with me.

Physical examination revealed a 3 year old who weighed only 8.9 kgs who was otherwise pink, active and well. The cause of his abdominal mass was an enlarged left kidney.


This is the MRU done by the adult Urologist.

The Patient underwent a Laparoscopic Left Nephrectomy and recovered from the procedure very well.
