The most common tumors that may be misclassified as papillary RCCs are the following: metanephric adenoma, epithelial-predominant nephroblastoma, (33) clear cell RCC with prominent papillary growth pattern, clear cell papillary RCC, and translocation RCC.
The differential diagnosis of cystic tumors includes non-neoplastic cystic renal diseases, multilocular cystic RCC, sarcomatoid RCC and nephroblastoma. In multilocular cystic RCC, clear cell conglomerations are found on the cyst wall and blastema is found in nephroblastoma.

Childhood renal neoplasm accounts for approximately 7% of all cancers in childhood and are in the vast majority Wilms' tumor (WT) or nephroblastoma [1,2].
This pediatric renal tumor (also called Wilms tumor or nephroblastoma) can be associated with numerous congenital anomalies which can occur as isolated entities or within well-defined syndromes (Beckwith Wiedemann, Denys-Drash, Perlman, Simpson-Golabi-Behmel, and WAGR syndromes) [20-27].
