Rhabdoid tumor of the kidney (RTK) is a rare, highly malignant neoplasm of childhood. The clinical profile of this neoplasm differs from that of Wilms’ tumor. We present two cases of RTK. In both our cases, large bulky masses with poorly defined margins and calcifications were demonstrated. The clinical and imaging findings are compared with other childhood renal neoplasms.
