Cancer. 1979 Jan;43(1):46-50.

Multiple pulmonary lesions in a patient treated with BCNU (1,3-bis(2-chloroethyl)-1-nitrosourea) for glioblastoma multiforme.


A patient with a glioblastoma multiforme who was treated with BCNU, developed rapidly progressive pulmonary disease. The pulmonary changes were studied pathologically and included atypical alveolar cell hyperplasia, hyaline membranes, and interstitial fibrosis. These lesions contributed to the patient's demise and may be related to the administration of BCNU.
