Bilateral Wilms' Tumor Metastasis to Right Spermatic Cord


Wilms' tumor (WT) is the most common primary renal tumor in children. Common sites of metastases are lungs, liver and regional lymph nodes. Testicular and paratesticular metastasis due to WT have been reported but it is extremely rare. We report a 33-month -old male with bilateral WT and metastasis to right spermatic cord.
