[Article in French]


The case of a 7 year-old who presented with lymphangitic carcinomatosis revealed by lung biopsy and secondary to renal adenocarcinoma is described. This biopsy was performed because of radiologic and clinical signs associating bilateral interstitial infiltrates, mediastinal adenopathy and gradually increasing respiratory distress. Despite treatment, the child died two weeks later.
