Author information

Department of Pathology, North Shore University Hospital, New York University School of Medicine, Manhasset 11030, USA.


Malignant rhabdoid tumor of the kidney is an uncommon renal tumor in children. The tumor has aggressive behavior and a poor prognosis and is extremely rare in adults; only 3 cases of renal rhabdoid tumors have been reported in adults. We describe here the microscopic, immunohistochemical, and electron microscopic characteristics of another case in a 38-year-old woman. This case reinforces the importance of recognizing this entity in the adult population.
