Development of Aseptic Renal Abscess in a Patient with Non-Small-Cell Lung Cancer with ALK Translocation during Crizotinib Treatment
Background: Crizotinib is a tyrosine kinase inhibitor of ALK, MET and ROS1. In a safety database trial, it was suggested an association of Crizotinib with the development of renal cyst in patients with non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Aim: To report an uncommon side effect of Crizotinib in a patient with NSLC. Case Presentation: We report the case of a 68-year-old woman with NSCLC who developed bilateral progressive aseptic renal abscesses during Crizotinib treatment. Conclusion: Further studies may be necessary to determinate the risk of renal cyst development and the management of these complications.
