Congenital mesoblastic nephroma (CMN) is a rare benign renal tumor, typically occurring in utero or during infancy. We are reporting a youngest case of left sided classical congenital mesoblastic nephroma in a fullterm, small for gestational age, male neonate, who was detected with left sided flank mass immediately after birth. The patient was managed successfully by total nephrectomy. The diagnosis of CMN-classical type was confirmed on histopathological examination.
