Abstract

Procarbazine is a chemotherapy methylating agent that has been used in combination with other drugs, perhaps most successfully in the treatment of Hodgkin's disease. There are several side effects that it is commonly associated with; however, it has only rarely been reported to cause lung injury. The resulting pneumonitis may be severe and irreversible. There are eight reported cases in the literature. Here, we report another such case.
