ATYPICAL HEMOLITIC UREMIC SYNDROME AFTER ADMINISTRATION OF DOCETAXEL

Abstract

The purpose of this study is to describe the clinical case of a patient suffering from a gland carcinoma with bilateral inguinal and pelvic lymph node metastases in treatment with weekly administrations of Docetaxel.
After two therapy cycles, the patient developed an atypical uremic hemolytic Syndrome (SEUa), treated with infusions of frozen fresh plasma, hemodialysis, and antibiotics.
Because of a severe septic secondary complication on an extensive lymph node abscess, the administration of Eculizumab was not possible.
The patient survived the mentioned Syndrome and is currently in periodic dialysis treatment.
