Fat containing bilateral synchronous Wilms’ tumor: Imaging findings

Abdussamet Batur1, Ulku Kerimoglu1

The Wilms’ tumor (WT), an embryonic neoplasm deemed to arise from metanephric blastema, is the most common renal tumor of childhood. Bilaterality is reported to occur in approximately 5% of such cases. Although the sources in the radiologic literature state that when CT shows definite fat within a renal mass, angiomyolipoma can be established as the diagnosis and fat tissue can be seen in 7% of the WTs, as well. In this case report, we denote radiological features of a synchronous bilateral WT containing fatty tissue.
