LOZA MUNARRIZ, Reyner et al. Cystic partially differentiated nephroblastoma: Case report. Rev Med Hered [online]. 2017, vol.28, n.4, pp.254-257. ISSN 1018-130X.

Cystic partially differentiated nephroblastoma is a clinical variant presentation of Wilms tumor. It is very uncommon and it is composed of multiloculated cysts with fine trabecula containing epithelial cells in process of differentiation. It usually affects children below 2 years of age. We present the case of a 6-month male patient who presented with a right renal tumor. Pathological findings of the resected kidney showed cystic lesions with multiple fibro vascular septum that contained primitive tubular and glomerular kidney cells with no mass effect. The final diagnosis was cystic partially differentiated nephroblastoma. The clinical evolution was favorable.

Keywords : Wilms Tumor; cysts; kidney diseases; cystic.
