We describe a case of fetal congenital mesoblastic nephroma (CMN) who was diagnosed with ultrasound at 32 weeks of gestation; after delivery, the neonate received left radical nephrectomy, and pathology report confirmed the diagnosis. All cross-sectional imaging studies, such as ultrasonography, computed tomography (CT) scanning, and magnetic resonance imaging, may help to define the organ of origin and the relationship to the ipsilateral kidney. To our knowledge, this is the first case of fetal CMN who was diagnosed in the third trimester and then with a live-born baby in Taiwan. The prenatal examination such as three-dimensional ultrasound and CT image was performed to help us for prenatal diagnosis.
