The ultrastructural and immunocytochemical findings in a series of 32 rarely encountered childhood renal malignancies are reviewed. The discussion includes anaplastic Wilms' tumors, renal clear cell sarcomas, rhabdoid tumors, carcinomas, sarcomas, neuroendocrine tumors, and lymphomas. An attempt is made to assess the relative merits of these two techniques in the differential diagnosis of these often troublesome lesions.
