Pleural malignant mesothelioma following Wilms' tumor.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

A 28-year-old woman had a left pleural malignant mesothelioma develop, which resulted in her death. At age four, she had undergone a left nephrectomy for Wilms' tumor and had received radiation therapy to the left renal fossa and to the right lung, the latter for a presumed diagnosis of metastatic tumor. Asbestos body counts of digested lung tissue were within the normal range. This is the fourth reported case of malignant mesothelioma following Wilms' tumor and is the first to provide quantitative analysis of asbestos in the lung.
