Spontaneous bilateral pneumothorax in metastatic renal cell carcinoma

04/01/2010

Bilateral spontaneous pneumothorax is a rare occurrence in patients with both primary and metastatic lung cancer. Pneumothorax occurring as a complication of vascular endothelial growth factor receptor (VEGFR) inhibitor therapy has not been previously described in the medical literature. Sunitinib malate is a VEGFR inhibitor approved for the treatment of advanced renal cell carcinoma. We present a patient with metastatic renal cell carcinoma manifested as bilateral pulmonary nodules who developed a bilateral spontaneous pneumothorax 3 weeks after initiation of sunitinib therapy.
