Abstract

Wilms tumor is the most common renal tumor in children. However, tumor extension into the ureter is exceedingly rare. We present a case of bilateral Wilms tumor with unilateral ureteral extension into the bladder. This case illustrates the importance of thoughtful diagnostic evaluation and surgical planning to obtain a good oncologic outcome while preserving renal function.
