Abstract

A 64-year old man first visited our clinic approximately 10 years ago because of diabetic nephropathy that had developed into chronic renal failure. He was hospitalized to examine a left S10 tumor shadow. Based on the results of these examinations, a primary left S10 T2N0M1, ED small cell lung cancer, was diagnosed. During his outpatient visits nephropathy was found. Following admission, he began dialysis (HD). During the detailed examinations, chemotherapy with amrubicin (AMR)was performed and the blood concentration of the drug was measured. The results showed no significant variations in blood concentration before and after the dialysis. While PR was achieved in this patient, a reduction in grade 4 eosinophils was observed as an adverse reaction.
