DOI : 10.5505/tjo.2020.2510 Most renal cancers that occur in childhood and adolescence are nephroblastomas. Renal cell carcinoma is very rare in the pediatric population. It is highly aggressive and metastasizes rapidly. Consequently, the survival rates are poor. We report the cases of three adolescents aged 9, 14, and 18 years with renal cell carcinoma. We analyze through these observations the clinical, histological, and therapeutic characteristics of this entity. Keywords : Adolescence; carcinoma, childhood; clear cell; renal cell
