Abstract

The Authors report 7 cases of primary retroperitoneal tumors observed in a five-year period. On the basis of the literature data, they examine the diagnostic, therapeutic and prognostic features, emphasizing the need for a surgical treatment supported, only when useful, by radio- and chemotherapy. The importance of an early diagnosis, thanks to modern technologic progress, is also stressed, echography in particular.
