In conclusion, Pax8/Pax2 and NGFR are sensitive markers for the diagnosis of WT and CCSK, respectively. However, their specificity is limited by variable reactivity within a subset of other renal neoplasms.
Acquired von Willebrand syndrome (AVWS) is a rare acquired bleeding disorder that resembles von Willebrand disease by its clinical symptoms and laboratory findings, but differs by its negative personal and family history of bleeding diathesis. AVWS is mostly seen in the elderly, but it has been described in children, often in those with congenital heart disease and Wilms tumor. It is most commonly associated with lymphoproliferative, myeloproliferative, cardio-vascular, or autoimmune diseases, solid tumors, and certain drugs.

Adoptive T-cell therapy with T cell receptor (TCR) -engineered T cells is an attractive strategy for cancer treatment and the success in this therapy is dependent on the functional avidity of the transduced TCRs against targeted tumor antigens. Therefore, the establishment of the methodology of the efficient and precise evaluation of TCR functional avidity has been awaited. Here, we show a novel platform cell line, named 2D3, which enables the fun…
Wilms tumor is the most common renal tumor of childhood. Duplication of the inferior vena cava is an uncommon anomaly. In the present study, we present a case of Wilms tumor with the inferior vena cava duplica…

Conclusions 3D reconstruction and the full-scale printing models are a useful tool in cases of complex tumor resections as they contribute to a better understanding of the relationships between the tumor and adjacent organs, helping to anticipate certain surgical complications. They also provide additional information to conventional imaging tests, being able to influence therapeutic decisions and facilitate the understanding by the family, improving doctor–patient communication.

Ewing sarcoma/primitive neuroectodermal tumor (Ewing/PNET sarcomas or EPS) are a group of round cell tumors. Malignant round cell tumors form a large and diverse group that includes rhabdomyosarcoma, synovial sarcoma, non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, neuroblastoma, hepatoblastoma, Wilm’s tumor, desmoplastic small round cell tumor, and other morphologically similar entities. Differential diagnosis of Ewing sarcoma/primitive neuroectodermal tumor (Ewing/PNET sarcomas or EPS) is difficult. In addition to morphology and immunohistochemistry (IHC), differential diagnosis …
