Abstract

A patient with a late recurrence (13 years) of Wilms tumor is presented. After relapse with conventional chemotherapy, an objective partial remission was obtained with bleomycin, vinblastine, cyclophosphamide, and cis-platinum. Stable disease was noted when bleomycin was withheld. Bleomycin in this combination appeared to effect a good response, and further studies of chemotherapy of Wilms tumor should include bleomycin in combination with other active agents.
