Abstract

Imatinib is now indicated as the first line therapy for chronic myeloid leukemia (CML). Treatment of CML with imatinib is generally well tolerated and the risk of severe adverse affects is low. Many new drugs including targeted therapy are combined with antineoplastic agents safely. We here report a patient with CML who developed concurrent mesenchymal tumor while undergoing therapy with imatinib and treated with combination chemotherapy including bleomycin, etoposide, and cisplatin, as well as imatinib without severe toxicity.
