FONERON, Alejandro; VITAGLIANO, Gonzalo; SANCHEZ-SALAS, Rafael y CASTILLO, Octavio A.. Perirenal myxoliposarcoma: Case report with laparoscopic approach. Arch. Esp. Urol. [online]. 2007, vol.60, n.3, pp.290-294. ISSN 0004-0614.
Objetive: To report our experience in the management of one case of perirenal myxoliposarcoma. Methods: We report the case of an 86-year-old male consulting for occasional dizziness. Examination revealed a left flank abdominal mass. CT scan reported the presence of a 12 cm multiloculated cystic mass at the lower pole of the right kidney. Hand-assisted right laparoscopic nephrectomy was carried out. Results: The operation was uneventful and the pathologic study reported a kidney with preserved architecture and a tumor showing characteristics of grade 1-2 myxoliposarcoma with undifferentiation to grade 3 myxofibrosarcoma in intimate contact with the lower pole. Conclusions: We believe that laparoscopic surgery permits the surgical solution of this type of lesion without compromising the oncological principles, and offers the well-known advantages of a minimally invasive approach.
