Radiofrequency ablation in Von-Hippel-Lindau disease with bilateral renal cell carcinoma: a case report

Subbiah Shanmugam, Bharanidharan ., Radha Siva Bharath C. H.

Abstract


Von Hippel-Lindau (VHL) disease is a familial form of renal cell carcinoma which manifests as bilateral renal cell carcinoma. Radiofrequency ablation is a minimally invasive technique helps in treating renal cell carcinoma with renal function preservation. We reported a case of 29 years old male with bilateral renal cell carcinoma. We treated him with left radical nephrectomy and right side multifocal RCC with Radio frequency ablation. Radiofrequency ablation definitely have a role as alternative treatment modality to nephron sparing surgical procedure for small (<4 cm) localised RCC. Further studies are needed to assess its long-term efficacy.
