A Surveillance, Epidemiology and End Results (SEER) program comparison of adult and pediatric Wilms tumor Full Text
Ali AN et al. – Adults in the Surveillance, Epidemiology and End Results (SEER) database had statistically worse OS than pediatric patients despite previous studies showing comparable outcome when treated on protocol. The worse outcome of SEER adults likely stems from incorrect diagnosis, inadequate staging and undertreatment. The authors recommend lymph node samplings for all adult Wilms' tumor patients and collaboration with pediatric oncologists.
