Özet

Background: Vincristine and actinomycin-D have long been used as the preoperative chemotherapy before nephrectomy in patients with Wilms tumor (WT). Actinomycin-D is not readily found in Turkey, and delay in treatment, occurring basically from commercial and marketing problems, prompted us to administer alternatives such as doxorubicin, another antitumor antibiotic available in Turkey, to our newly diagnosed patients with WT.
