Wilms’ Tumor in a 37-Year-Old

By Gowreeson Thevendran, Hugo A. Farne and Amir V. Kaisary

Abstract

Wilms’ tumor is rare in adults. Though the approach to diagnosis and treatment of adult Wilms’ tumor (AWT) is closely modeled on recommendations for childhood Wilms’ tumor, views differ on how aggressive the treatment should be. We report a case of a 37-year-old with Stage III favorable histology AWT. A radical nephrectomy was performed and the patient was due for chemotherapy. Recent advances, controversies and current recommendations in the treatment of AWT are discussed
