Summary

A 62-year-old woman developed subacute renal failure after the repeated administration of ifosfamide (IFX), despite its combination with continuous sodium 2-mercaptoethane sulfonate (mesna) infusion. Biopsy findings, the possible underlying mechanism, and the existing literature are discussed.
