Mesoblastic Nephroma versus Wilms

Mesoblastic nephroma and Wilms tumor look very similar on imaging as both present as large solid renal masses. Mesoblastic nephroma occurs in the neonate whereas Wilms tumor is very rare in the newborn. Both are treated with surgical excision and the final distinction is made with pathology.
