This is a retrospective study designed to find out the clinical profile of children with Wilms' tumor admitted to King Hussein Medical Center over a 6.5-year period. There were 26 patients (eight males and 18 females) with a median age of three years (range 1-8 years), at the time of diagnosis. Twenty children went into complete remission for a period ranging from 4-80 months (mean 46 months). Six children relapsed locally or with distant metastasis. All the six children with relapse died because of progressive disease. The overall relapse free survival was 77% for all stages (100%, 90%, 66.6%, 0% and 100% for stage I, II, III, IV and V respectively). This is similar to the international figures for stage I & II but is still behind for stage III & IV.
