Abstract

Reactions 1680, p186 - 2 Dec 2017 Thrombotic microangiopathy: 2 case reports In a study of 117 cancer patients, a 57-year-old man and a 74-year-old woman, developed thrombotic microangiopathy at the end of one year of interferon α therapy for chronic myeloid leukaemia and at the end of six months of sunitinib [sunitinib malate] therapy for gastric mesothelioma, respectively [routes, dosages and outcomes not stated]. In both the patients. light microscopy showed diffuse and severe endothelial damage with double contours and occlusion of capillary lumen, while electron microscopy of the glomerular capillary wall showed expansion of the subendothelial space by electron-lucent debris. Author comment: "The present study observed three biopsy-confirmed rare cases: [thrombotic microangiopathy] in a patient with [chronic myeloid leukaemia] taking interfon- [alpha] and in a patient with gastric mesothelioma taking sunitinib malate."
