A Case Report of Wilms’ Tumor

Introduction: Wilms’ tumor is most common among under-five children with renal cancer.

Case presentation: We report the case of a 4 year-old Vietnamse boy who presented with the tumor on the right side of the abdomen with haematuria, cried at each time of urination, hypertension and moderate microcytic anaemia. The Wilms’ tumor was confirmed by CT scan and histology.

Conclusion: Practitioners and patients need to be aware of the initial clinical signs if the child gets high blood pressure and haematuria. Screening for Wilm’s tumor relates to child survival. Ultrasound could be done on a 3-4 months interval until the child reaches age of 8 years old is recommended in the situation of Vietnam.
