Abstract

A patient with metastatic ovarian cancer was treated with liposomal doxorubicin and carboplatin. She had an extravasation during liposomal doxorubicin infusion. Initially, she was treated conservatively with cold compresses and topical treatment. However, because of worsening of symptoms, she received dexrazoxane once daily for 3 days after which complete recovery occurred. This is the first casereport on symptomatic extravasation of liposomal doxorubicin treated with dexrazoxane.
