Abstract

Our report concerns a neonate who was noted to have palpable kidneys soon after birth. Her clinical and radiologic findings were compatible with the diagnosis of autosomal recessive polycystic kidney disease. The patient eventually died of sepsis-related multiorgan failure, and on autopsy, surprisingly, was found to have leukemic infiltrates in the kidney. Healthcare providers need to be aware that congenital acute myelogenous leukemia, although rare, can present in the newborn period with nephromegaly.
