Rhabdoid tumor of kidney is one of the uncommon pediatric renal neoplasms with highly aggressive clinical course. We are presenting a case of 1 year child with abdominal distension and hematuria. On Contrast enhanced computed tomography (CECT) a heterogenous mass in lower pole of kidney was detected. Histopathological and immunohistochemical study after radical nephrectomy revealed Malignant rhabdoid tumor of kidney. It has a tendency to metastasize early and it is associated with synchronous
presence of other malignancies. No definite effective treatment for this tumor is available till now. This further necessitates the early diagnosis and prompt management which can be life saving for the patient. We are presenting this case to emphasize on its rarity and aggressive clinical behaviour.
