Cytokine-induced killer (CIK) cells have been shown to be effective in the treatment of advanced cancer and minimal residual diseases. We report a multiple myeloma (MM) patient with concomitant lung cancer and paraneoplastic dermatoses, who received cellular immunotherapy with CIK cells which were derived from peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) after being primed with anti-cluster of differentiation 3 (CD3) monoclonal antibody, interleukin-2 (IL-2), interferon-γ (IFN-γ) and IL-1. After treatment MM and lung cancer remained stable and no progression or recurrence was observed. Paraneoplastic dermatoses were obviously improved after treatment, which was first reported. No evident side effects were observed. These findings suggested that cellular immunotherapy with CIK cells was safe and effective in this patient with MM and lung cancer, and it might be a potent therapeutic option for paraneoplastic dermatoses.
