TORRES GOMEZ, F. J.; SILVA ABAD, A.  and  POYATO GALAN. Adult´s mesoblastic nephroma: Report of a case with aggressive course. Arch. Esp. Urol. [online]. 2007, vol.60, n.1, pp.72-75. ISSN 0004-0614.

Objective: Mesoblastic nephroma is a rare renal neoplasia mainly diagnosed in the first three months of life; there is an adult type with pathologic similarities but it has its own features. Methods: We report the case of a 71-year-old female patient with the diagnosis of adult mesoblastic nephroma, the clinical outcome of which was ominous. Results: The presence of epithelial elements with tubular conformation surrounded by a spindle cell component is greatly useful to perform the differential diagnosis between this entity and others of greater clinical significance. Conclusions: Although scarce, there are cases in the bibliography similar to ours, with an aggressive behaviour that maybe require a more aggressive treatment, and not the conservative one traditionally used for these tumors.

Keywords : Nephroma; Mesoblastic; Adult.
