'Rhabdoid' Wilms' tumor: an ultrastructural study.


We studied a 5-week-old infant who had a "rhabdoid" Wilms' tumor. Ultrastructural studies disclosed aggregates of cytoplasmic filaments that seemed to correspond with the eosinophilic cytoplasmic bodies seen by light microscopy, but did not uncover evidence of rhabdomyoblastic differentiation. The histogenesis of this subtype was not established, but origin from the metanephric blastema could not be ruled out.
