Xp11.2 translocation-associated renal cell carcinoma (RCC) is a rare tumor that accounts for at least one-third of childhood RCC. Different reports have emphasized that previous radio/chemotherapy might be involved in its pathogenesis. We describe a child who developed a t(X;1) (p11.2;p34) associated RCC after previous treatment for genitourinary rhabdomyosarcoma in infancy. The presence of the PSF-TFE3 fusion has only been described in a very limited number of cases. Our report expands the spectrum of tumors in which RCC can arise in the pediatric age group after chemotherapy. (AU)
