Recurrence of Wilms' tumour after 5 years of disease‐free survival is rare. We present the case of a 26‐year‐old man who had been diagnosed of Wilms' tumour at the age of 6 years treated by surgery, chemotherapy, and radiotherapy and who remained disease free for 8 years, after which lung metastases were detected. Second complete remission was attained with surgery and chemotherapy and 20 years after initial diagnosis he again presented with lung metastases, similarly achieving complete remission with surgery and secondline chemotherapy. The clinical and biological aspects of late metastasis in this neoplasm are discussed. © 1994 Wiley‐Liss, Inc.
