|Wilms tumour is the most common paediatric renal tumour but is extremely rare in adults. The real incidence of this tumour is unavailable in literature as majority are only case reports because of its rarity. We present 3 cases of Wilms tumour that occurred in male patients in 3-5 decade of life following Kilton’s criteria. There are no strict guidelines for its management. NWTS suggested combination therapy of surgery, radiation and chemotherapy were found to be beneficial to reduce recurrence and metastasis. We present 3 cases of Wilms tumour in a 12 year study, which occurred in adult males with characteristic histology and Stage I and III disease at diagnosis.|
