Abstract :

Wilm’s tumor is a common malignancy amongst children, it has multiple histologic subtypes that mostly have a high cure rate when treated by resection and chemotherapy, however, a particular subtype which is called the “Blastemal-type” Wilms’ tumor occurs less frequently in children and requires more intensified regimens of treatment. Herby, we present a case of a young boy who was histologically diagnosed with Blastemal-type Wilms’ tumor.
