Neuroblastoma mimicking rhabdoid tumor of the kidney

Peter H. Shaw, Paul S. Dickman

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Rhabdoid tumor of the kidney (RTK) has mimicked other renal tumors histologically, but there has been only one previous report of neuroblastoma mimicking RTK. The authors present the case of a 17-month-old boy who presented with a large left renal mass that was diagnosed as RTK. At the completion of therapy he was found to have residual masses. They were biopsied and found to be viable neuroblastoma.
