Abstract

Congenital mesoblastic nephroma (CMN) is a renal stromal neoplasm of infancy. It comprises 3‑10% of all pediatric renal tumors. We report a case of CMN in a 30 week old premature female neonate seen at autopsy who was born to a 26‑year‑old woman by emergency cesarean section on account of polyhydramnios.

Key words: Congenital, mesoblastic nephroma, polyhydramnios, renal tumor
