Abstract:

Incidence of wilms tumour(WT) in adults is low, the exact number is unknown owing to insufficient documentation or incorrect diagnosis. Compared to their paediatric counterparts, adult wilms tumour has shown poorer prognosis, but with use of multi-modality treatment there is improvement in response and overall survival. Here in this case report we discuss a case of adult wilms tumour with characteristic triphasic histology & unusual 3 year survival post operatively with irregular treatment in the face of metastatic disease.
