Answer

Answer

Epithelial nephroblastomatosis, or cystic Wilms tumor, is less malignant than Wilms tumor and may appear cystic or papillary. In its benign form, it gives rise to a multilocular cystic renal disease. Ultrasonographic and CT findings do not help in predicting the degree of malignancy.
