Abstract

Abstract Solitary multilocular cysts of the kidney are considered to be rare lesions. An instance of this unusual entity occurring in a child of 2 yr of age has been described, and compared with other reported instances. Eighteen such cases in the pediatric age group have been reviewed and compared with 22 similar cases in adults. The pathogenesis of this lesion is discussed with particular reference to the hypothesis currently proposed by other workers, that there exists a distinct developmental association between Wilms' tumor and multilocular cysts of the kidney.
