Wilms tumor is the most common renal tumor of childhood, occurring with an incidence of 1 in 10,000 and with a median age of diagnosis between 3 and 4 years of age. Wilms tumours are thought to develop from abnormally persistent embryonal cells within nephrogenic rests. Histologically, Wilms tumor mirrors the development of the normal kidney and classically consists of 3 cell types: blastema, epithelia, and stroma (summary by Slade et al., 2010).
