Wilms tumour or nephroblastoma is the most common renal tumour of in children. It accounts for 6% of all pediatric tumours and is the second most frequent intrabdominal solid organ tumour in children. Inferior vena cava (IVC) involvement by Wilms tumour occurs in 4-10% of patients and right atrium thrombus extension in less than 1%. Using a multidisciplinary approach, overall survival is excellent in Wilms tumour. We are presenting this case because Wilms tumour with right atrial thrombus is relatively rare and continues to remain a challenge for treating physicians.
