Temozolomide Reactions 1680, p319 - 2 Dec 2017 Thrombocytopenia and nausea: case report An 8-year-old boy developed thrombocytopenia and nausea during treatment with temozolomide [route and times to reactions onsets stated; not all outcomes stated]. The boy was diagnosed with an anaplastic oligodendroglioma in the frontal lobe with local leptomeningeal involvement and periventricular subcallosal extension, for which he underwent a near total resection and also had a 1p/19q codeletion. He was started on temozolomide 200 mg/m /day for five days every 28 days for a total of 12 cycles. He tolerated the temozolomide therapy well except for the development of thrombocytopenia and minor nausea. The boy’s temozolomide therapy was delayed once for thrombocytopenia, and his nausea was relieved using ondansetron. His tumour was an isocitrate dehydrogenase wild-type tumour, which showed MGMT gene promoter methylation and harboured a BRAF alteration, an ATRX mutation and CHEK1 frameshift mutation. Author comment: "Based on the favorable cytogenetics (but prior to the IDH sequencing, which was only available later), conservative management with [temozolomide] 200 mg/m daily for 5 days every 28 days for 12 cycles was employed. Therapy was well tolerated with one delay for thrombocytopenia and minor nausea relieved with ondansetron." Sorge C, et al.
