Nephroblastomatosis (NB) has been considered as a precursor of Wilms tumor (WT). The natural history of NB seems to present significant variation as some lesions may regress spontaneously, while others may grow and expand or relapse and develop into WT later in childhood. Although, most investigators suggest adjutant chemotherapy, the ...

Congenital intrapericardial diaphragmatic hernia with omphalocele is very rare. Few cases have been reported in the literature. The embryologic mechanism of this is considered to be abnormal development of the ventral mesoderm at 3-4 weeks after conception. Sometimes, omphalocele is repaired, rather than intrapericardial diaphragmatic hernia, thus causing serious consequences because ...
