Primitive renal sarcoma is a rare pathology (1% of all renal neoplasms) characterized by fatal prognosis for its rapid and aggressive course. Three patients, with primitive renal sarcoma, underwent a radical nephrectomy, followed by chemotherapy with doxorubicin, isophosphamide and vincristine. All the patients died for the clinic progress of the disease. Mortality was 100% due to the aggressiveness of the disease. In conclusion, radical nephrectomy, followed by chemotherapy, is the treatment which allows a considerable improvement of clinical conditions of patient, even if mortality does not change.
