Abstract

Renal cell carcinoma rarely occurs in children and adolescents. Localized disease has good prognosis, whereas distant metastasis have poor prognosis, with no effective therapy. Recently, 10% to 20% of adult patients have shown an apparent response to immunotherapy; however the limited pediatric experience confirms a very poor prognosis. We present a case from a patient with renal cell carcinoma with liver metastasis who has been treating with bevacizumab for ten years. She is doing well, without side effects, presenting reduction in size and number of the liver nodules.
