Version of Record online: 28 DEC 2001 | DOI: 10.1002/cncr.10204

Collecting or Bellini duct carcinoma (CDC) is a rare variant of kidney carcinoma that is associated with an aggressive course and extremely poor prognosis. CDC accounts for approximately 1–3% of all renal neoplasms and has a tendency to occur in younger, male, and white patients. Immunotherapy does not appear to be effective and to the authors' knowledge there are no standard treatment regimens for CDC. In the current study, the authors report a patient with CDC who achieved a major response to combination chemotherapy with doxorubicin and gemcitabine.
