|Clear Cell Renal Cell Carcinoma Congenital Mesoblastic Nephroma Rhabdoid Tumor of the Kidney Wilms Tumor and Other Childhood Kidney Tumors||Other: laboratory biomarker analysis|
I. To determine whether focal adhesion kinase (FAK) is expressed and if FAK is phosphorylated in pediatric renal tumors.
Archived tumor tissue samples are analyzed for FAK expression by immunohistochemistry (IHC). IHC staining is compared in normal renal tissue, Wilms tumor (routine and anaplastic), malignant rhabdoid tumor of the kidney, clear cell sarcoma of the kidney, and mesoblastic nephroma.

Basic science (FAK expression)
Archived tumor tissue samples are analyzed for FAK expression by IHC. IHC staining is compared in normal renal tissue, Wilms tumor (routine and anaplastic), malignant rhabdoid tumor of the kidney, clear cell sarcoma of the kidney, and mesoblastic nephroma.
Other: laboratory biomarker analysis
