Abstract

In a recent survey of more than one hundred childhood renal tumors in our Laboratory files, we identified a unique case characterized by an unusual degree of differentiation and cell maturity. Histologically this case was notable for an orderly array of small and uniformly-packed tubules with a rosette-like configuration. The nuclei were oval, smooth and of a bland appearance. Mitoses were absent. Many glomerular figures were intermingled. This renal tumor picture is somewhat different from that known as tubular Wilms' tumor because of the well-differentiated adenomatous pattern and the absence of any blastema. The term metanephric adenoma is suggested for this tumor, which may represent the benign counterpart of Wilms' tumor.
