Abstract

Cardiovascular ischemia has been recognized as a serious but uncommon complication of chemotherapy. We report a case of myocardial ischemia during combined chemotherapy with cisplatin and etoposide for non-small cell lung cancer. A 58-year-old man with non-small cell lung cancer and previous history of coronary artery disease suffered chest pain with ECG changes during the third course of chemotherapy with cisplatin and etoposide. Chemotherapy should be used cautiously in patients with coronary risk factors.
