Wilms' tumor is one of the main tumors in children, is characterized as a malignant renal neoplasm resulting in the abnormal reproduction of metanephric blastema cells. The incidence of the disease is higher between two and five years of age and rare after ten years. We present a case report involving a 7-month-old child with an extensive mass in the topography of the left kidney to the pelvis, with an expansive retroperitoneal lesion occupying the left hemiabdomen and displacing the aorta and inferior vena cava. Tumor resection was indicated, and after induction and intubation, the child had cardiac arrest. Resuscitation maneuvers were performed until the tumor was removed, 40 minutes later. ETCO2 remained within normal limits during this period, and the cardiac rhythm spontaneously returned to normal as soon as the mass was removed. The child remained hospitalized for 39 days, being discharged to your residence, and seven months after the surgery she did not have any neurological sequelae and was developing normally for her age.
