Lef Congenital Mesoblasti Nephroma in a Term Male Neonate: A Case Report

Kamal Nain Rattan, Shruti Bansal, Vibha Sharma, Nikhil Sharma, Deepak Kumar Garg



Congenital mesoblasticnephroma (CMN) is a benign and very rare renal tumor, typically occurring in utero or during infancy. We are reporting a very young case of left sided classical congenital mesoblasticnephroma in a full term, 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.
