Treatment Options for Wilms Tumor and Other Childhood Kidney Tumors

    continued...

    Wilms Tumor in Adults

    There is no standard treatment for adults with Wilms tumor. Pediatric surgeons and oncologists are often part of the team that plans treatment because the treatments used for children may also be used for adults.

    Clear Cell Sarcoma of the Kidney

    Treatment of clear cell sarcoma of the kidney may include the following:

    • Nephrectomy with removal of lymph nodes followed by combination chemotherapy and radiation therapy to the abdomen.
    • A clinical trial of nephrectomy with lymph node removal, with or without radiation therapy to the abdomen, and new combinations of chemotherapy.

    Check for U.S. clinical trials from NCI's list of cancer clinical trials that are now accepting patients with clear cell sarcoma of the kidney. For more specific results, refine the search by using other search features, such as the location of the trial, the type of treatment, or the name of the drug. General information about clinical trials is available from the NCI Web site.

    Rhabdoid Tumor of the Kidney

    There is no standard treatment for rhabdoid tumor of the kidney. Treatment is usually within a clinical trial and may include new combinations of chemotherapy and radiation therapy.

    Check for U.S. clinical trials from NCI's list of cancer clinical trials that are now accepting patients with rhabdoid tumor of the kidney. For more specific results, refine the search by using other search features, such as the location of the trial, the type of treatment, or the name of the drug. General information about clinical trials is available from the NCI Web site.

    Neuroepithelial Tumor of the Kidney

    There is no standard treatment for neuroepithelial tumor of the kidney. Treatment is usually within a clinical trial. It may be treated in the same way that Ewing family of tumors or primitive neuroectodermal tumors are treated. See the PDQ summary about Ewing Sarcoma Family of Tumors Treatment for more information.

    Check for U.S. clinical trials from NCI's list of cancer clinical trials that are now accepting patients with peripheral primitive neuroectodermal tumor of the kidney. For more specific results, refine the search by using other search features, such as the location of the trial, the type of treatment, or the name of the drug. General information about clinical trials is available from the NCI Web site.
