Abstract

Wilms tumor is a child-specific cancer with a 5-year survival rate exceeding 90%. We report the case of a 48-year-old man who survived after he was diagnosed with Wilms tumor at 3 years but died due to a circulatory disorder after radiation therapy. At 34 years of age, he was diagnosed with arteriosclerosis obliterans. He received interventional radiology twice, but his vascular stent became occluded. Finally, septic shock occurred and he died. Our case study shows that the mortality risk of circulatory system increases with age in childhood cancer survivors, and they should be advised to lead healthy lifestyles.
