Congenital mesoblastic nephroma (CMN) is a rare renal tumor of infancy. Complete surgical excision is often sufficient. A premature neonate underwent left radical nephrectomy for CMN without any adjuvant therapy. Pathology was consistent with cellular type CMN. Six months postoperatively, the patient developed recurrence. He subsequently underwent re-excision without any adjuvant chemotherapy. The baby is tumor free for more than a year.
