Abstract

The World Health Organization has announced the pandemic of coronavirus infection (COVID-19) that cause acute respiratory syndrome. Cancer patients are more susceptible to infections due to systemic immunosuppression caused by malignant neoplasms and by anticancer therapy. Patients with Renal Cell Carcinoma (RCC) could be more sensitive to infections due to disorders in the immune system. The proposed algorithm is based on the recommendations of professional communities or on information published on the official websites of professional societies, adapted for planning care for RCC patients during the spread of COVID-19.
