Radiology–Pathology Conference: rhabdoid tumor of the kidney

Published:December 12, 2005DOI:https://doi.org/10.1016/j.clinimag.2005.09.027

      Abstract

      Rhabdoid tumor of the kidney (RTK) is a rare pediatric malignancy. Its imaging features by ultrasound and CT have been well described; however, to our knowledge, there are only a handful of case reports that describe the MR appearance of rhabdoid tumor. We report the MR appearance of a RTK in an 18-month-old boy, review the literature on its imaging features, and discuss the differential diagnosis of solid renal tumors in children.
