Desmoplastic round cell tumour is a very rare tumour of childhood and young adults, and is not usually suspected as an explanation of intraabdominal or pelvic tumour. We report two cases of desmoplastic round cell tumour of the abdomen in the paediatric age group, occurring in two boys, an 11-year-old and a 13-year-old. We aim to demonstrate the imaging findings and to emphasise the importance of including this tumour in the differential diagnosis of childhood intraabdominal and pelvic tumours.
