ABSTRACT: Neuroblastoma and Wilms' tumor are the common intra-abdominal malignancies of early childhood and it is important to differentiate between the two, as the management and outcome of these malignancies are very different. A neuroblastoma arising from the kidney or an aggressive neuroblastoma invading the kidney may be easily misdiagnosed as a case of Wilms' tumor preoperatively. We report a similar case of intra-renal neuroblastoma where we failed to pick up the diagnosis of neuroblastoma preoperatively. Any intrarenal tumor crossing the midline, encasing the aorta and vena cava or having massive retroperitoneal lymphadenopathy should point to a diagnosis of intrarenal neuroblastoma.
