Cyclophosphamide

Cyclophosphamide Reactions 1704, p123 - 2 Jun 2018 Gastrointestinal side effects: case report A 49-year-old woman developed gastrointestinal side effects during treatment with cyclophosphamide for hypertrophic pachymeningitis. The woman was diagnosed with hypertrophic pachymeningitis at the age of 48 years. She presented at the age of 49 years due to recurrence of hypertrophic pachymeningitis. She was receiving prednisolone. Based on the biopsy of the nasal mucosa, she was diagnosed with a limited form granulomatosis with polyangiitis. Therefore, monthly treatment with IV cyclophosphamide was initiated and administered three times at a dose of 600mg, 800mg and 800mg. Subsequently, she experienced gastrointestinal side effects [time to reaction onset not stated]. Therefore, the woman declined further treatment with cyclophosphamide.
