Abstract

Robotic surgery is gaining wider utility in adults; however, few reports have addressed the applicability of robotic surgery for renal tumors in children. The aim of this report is to share our experience in an 8-year-old child with metanephric stromal tumor. To our knowledge, besides being a rare tumor, this is the youngest case reported in the literature whose kidney tumor has been successfully removed with robotic partial nephrectomy. There is a worldwide tendency to perform minimal invasive surgery for kidney tumors. In the presence of an experienced team and proper conditions, we believe that robotic partial nephrectomy will be the preferred option in future.
