A 3-year-old girl presented with bilateral renal masses. The histologic diagnosis was lymphoblastic lymphoma. Cell surface markers showed a cytotoxic/suppressor T cell phenotype. The patient was treated with APO therapy. She has remained continuously disease-free for 30 months and has been off all therapy for 6 months. This rare case supports the value of precise classification (by histologic and immunologic methods) as a guide to appropriate tumor therapy.
