Wilms’ tumour (WT) is the most common paediatric renal tumour, which can present as a single nodule, as multifocal unilateral lesions or as bilateral tumours. Typically, WT comprises three histological components namely blastemal, epithelial and stromal. The proportion and the degree of maturation of these components vary significantly, making the histological appearance of each tumour unique. Classical triphasic WT rarely presents diagnostic difficulty for pathologists, but when only one…

Desmoplastic Small Round Cell Tumor of the Kidney: Report of a Case, Literature Review, and Comprehensive Discussion of the Distinctive Morphologic, Immunohistochemical, and Molecular Features in the Differential Diagnosis of Small Round Cell Tumors Affecting the Kidney

TLDR
A 15-year-old male presented with hematuria and was found to have a large renal tumor associated with adrenal, liver, lung, and bone metastases, and the patient died 4 years after the diagnosis.

Wilms Tumor of the Ovary: Review of the Literature and Report of 2 Cases.

TLDR
An extensive literature review and describes 2 patients with ovarian Wilms tumor, both presenting with abdominal pain and suspected ovarian torsion, which were diagnostically challenging and referred to the authors' center for an expert opinion.

Wilms Tumor of the Ovary: Review of the Literature and Report of 2 Cases.

TLDR
An extensive literature review and describes 2 patients with ovarian Wilms tumor, both presenting with abdominal pain and suspected ovarian torsion, which were diagnostically challenging and referred to the authors' center for an expert opinion.

Current Role of Imaging in the Management of Children with Wilms Tumor According to the New UMBRELLA Protocol

TLDR
Role of imaging studies are essential to obtain a presumptive diagnosis of WT, to provide disease staging information and to measure the tumor volume after neoadjuvant chemotherapy for the purposes of postoperative treatment stratification.

Current role of imaging in the management of children with Wilms tumor according to the new umbrella protocol

TLDR
Role of imaging studies are essential to obtain a presumptive diagnosis of WT, to provide disease staging information and to measure the tumor volume after neoadjuvant chemotherapy for the purposes of postoperative treatment stratification.

TP53 alterations in Wilms tumour represent progression events with strong intratumour heterogeneity that are closely linked but not limited to anaplasia

TLDR
A very close correlation between histological signs of anaplasia and TP53 alterations is found, indicating the latter may precede development of anaPLasia and thereby provide diagnostic value pointing towards aggressive disease.

Localized Nephroblastoma in Adults: Is Surgery Enough? Case Report and Literature Review

TLDR
This case illustrates the importance of adjuvant chemotherapy, despite R0 surgery in a localized nephroblastoma, as well as the need to treat nephrectomy first, then chemotherapy, whatever the stage.

Case Report on Wilm’s Tumor in Children

TLDR
A female child of 11 years from admitted to pediatric ward no .22, Acharya Vinoba Bhave rural hospital Sawangi wardha on 28/9/2020 with a rare case of Wilms tumor shows great improvement, his fever, abdominal pain, blood in urine is minimized and his Hb level is increased.

Paediatric renal tumours: recent developments, new entities and pathological features

TLDR
This review highlights both the salient features important for the diagnostic pathologist reporting paediatric renal tumours, and areas in which either new classifications or major advances in diagnostic criteria have occurred in recent years.

Metanephric adenoma: the utility of immunohistochemical and cytogenetic analyses in differential diagnosis, including solid variant papillary renal cell carcinoma and epithelial-predominant nephroblastoma

TLDR
Of the six tumors with discordant immunophenotype, two tumors were reclassified as papillary renal cell carcinoma after cytogenetic workup and it is recommended that all adult cases histologically resembling metanephric adenoma have WT1, CD57, CK7, and AMACR immunohistochemical staining performed.

Desmoplastic Small Round Cell Tumor of the Kidney in Childhood

TLDR
DSRCT should be considered in the differential diagnosis of renal tumors composed of small round cells in children diagnosed during a 3-year period.

The pathology of Wilms' tumour (nephroblastoma): the International Society of Paediatric Oncology approach

TLDR
The paper highlights the most common practical diagnostic difficulties that a pathologist is faced with in dealing with pretreated nephroblastomas and emphasises the importance of a systematic, step-by-step analysis based on adequately sampled material in order to accurately sub-classify a nephROblastoma as a low, intermediate or high risk tumour and assign its genuine stage.

Metanephric Adenoma, Nephrogenic Rests, and Wilms' Tumor: A Histologic and Immunophenotypic Comparison

TLDR
Seven cases of WT, including five CWT and two AWT, were strongly and diffusely positive with WT1 in the blastema and epithelium but showed only weak focal positivity in stromal cells, while Metanephric adenoma is histogenetically related to WT and is morphologically and immunophenotypically identical to maturing WT and nephrogenic rests.

Primary renal synovial sarcoma: molecular and morphologic delineation of an entity previously included among embryonal sarcomas of the kidney.

TLDR
Primary renal synovial sarcoma is a distinctive clinicopathologic entity confirmed by molecular detection of SYT-SSX fusion transcripts by reverse transcriptase polymerase chain reaction in 15 primary renal neoplasms.

Multilocular cyst of the kidney (cystic nephroma) and cystic, partially differentiated nephroblastoma. Terminology and criteria for diagnosis

TLDR
In general, nephrectomy alone appears to be adequate therapy for CPDN, but regular monitoring by noninvasive techniques would seem advisable, and the authors recommend several modifications of existing terminology and definitional criteria for these lesions.

Immunohistochemical Analysis of hSNF5/INI1 Distinguishes Renal and Extra-renal Malignant Rhabdoid Tumors From Other Pediatric Soft Tissue Tumors

TLDR
INI1 antibody immunohistochemistry is useful in confirming the histologic diagnosis of renal or extra-renal rhabdoid tumor, especially for cases with indeterminate histologic features, equivocal immunophenotypic profiles, or uninformative molecular studies.
