Simple renal cysts associated with ambiguous genitalia: Precursor to Wilms’ tumor?

Nitin James Peters, Swapnil Pattanshetti, Muneer Abas MAlik, Ram Samujh, Kirti Gupta


Wilms’ Tumor (WT) is the commonest renal tumor seen in children. WT frequently occurs in association with various urological malformations and genetic syndromes. We report a case of ambiguous genitalia with cryptorchidism and simple renal cysts, who went on to develop WT at the site of renal cysts. Management and follow up protocols are discussed along with relevant literature.
