Abstract

We report a case of a malignant rhabdoid tumor of the kidney (MRTK) associated with a cerebellar tumor. Diagnosis was confirmed before neoadjuvant chemotherapy by a percutaneous fine-needle biopsy of the abdominal tumor. The clinical and radiologic features of this rare association of childhood neoplasms are reviewed.

Key words: Rhabdoid tumor Kidney Brain tumor Percutaneous biopsy Child
