Triple therapy for adult Wilms tumor.


Adult Wilms tumor is still considered a rarity. Approximately 170 adult Wilms tumors have been reported. The final diagnosis is usually established with surgery. There is no specific radiologic diagnosis of adult Wilms tumor. We report on a case of Wilms tumor in a twenty-two-year-old black man. The tumor was removed with radical nephrectomy and classified as Stage II. Radiation of the renal fossa (4,000 rad) and chemotherapy with actinomycin D and vincristine were administered after surgery. Six years after surgery the patient is disease free. A review of published cases of adult Wilms tumor is presented, and a plea is made for triple therapy.
