Congenital mesoblastic nephroma.


Neonatal renal neoplasms are rare: most are congenital mesoblastic nephroma. In the past this neoplasm has been confused with Wilms' tumor, which in part may account for some of the more favorable prognosis ascribed to Wilms' tumor in children less than 1 yr of age. Congenital mesoblastic nephroma is usually a benign tumor. The recommended treatment is surgical excision. This is a report of two cases of congenital mesoblastic nephroma in infants who were treated successfully by nephrectomy.
