A 2.5 year old boy from Indonesia presented with a large intra abdominal mass. Clinically it appeared to arise from his right kidney. A CT scan confirmed this.


A preliminary diagnosis of Wilm’s tumour was made. He underwent a radical nephrectomy with removal of tumour thrombus from the IVC and lymph node sampling. He also had a Chemoport inserted for subsequent chemotherapy.
