Wilms' tumor (nephroblastoma), an embryonal type of renal cancer accounts for nearly 6% of all pediatric cancers and more than 95% of all kidney tumors in children.1 The tumor usually arises in a single kidney while synchronous bilateral or multifocal tumors can occur in approximately 10% of patients and tend to present at an earlier age.1-4 Wilms' tumor can also be diagnosed in adolescents or adults, but this is extremely rare, representing less than 1% of all renal tumors.5 The usual treatment approach in most patients is a combination of surgery and chemotherapy.
