Diffuse pulmonary disease after therapy with nitrogen mustard, vincristine, procarbazine, and prednisone.

Abstract

Pulmonary reactions may follow therapy with nitrogen mustard, vincristine, procarbazine, and prednisone. Two patients with Hodgkin's disease are described who were treated with nitrogen mustard, vincristine, procarbazine, and prednisone and developed diffuse lung disease. Their disease processes were evaluated with serial pulmonary function studies, chest radiography, and open lung biopsy. Hypersensitivity reactions appeared to be responsible, and treatment with corticosteroids was successful. Procarbazine may have been the responsible agent.
