BUSTAMANTE CHAVEZ, Rubí X.; YALTA ARCE, Herman  and  VASQUEZ SULLCA, Roy R.. Primitive peripheral neuroectodermal tumor of the kidney, case report. Rev. Cuerpo Med. HNAAA [online]. 2022, vol.15, n.4, e1377.  Epub Jan 28, 2023. ISSN 2225-5109.


Peripheral primitive neuroectodermal tumor of the kidney (PNETk) is a very aggressive rare disease that mainly affects young men.

Case report:

A 19-year-old male patient with symptoms of abdominal pain, hematuria and a palpable mass, the tomography shows a large left renal tumor. Conventional radical nephrectomy was performed and sent for pathology study plus histochemistry, resulting in PNETk. The patient then continued his oncology management for chemotherapy initially.


The PNETk that we describe represents the first case reported in our country, it constitutes a unique clinical entity due to its rarity, being a challenge to make a diagnosis and its behavior and management is still based on case reports due to its infrequency.

Keywords : Primitive peripheral neuroectodermal tumor; Kidney; Rare disease; Nephrectomy.
