PMID:  1904665     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A case of cancer-related hemolytic-uremic syndrome is reported. The patient presented a spontaneous recovery, which is unusual in this clinical picture. Mitomycin C is regarded as responsible for this toxic event in most cases. The case history reported here is discussed in relation to dose and scheduling of mitomycin C, and a safe maximum dosage is suggested.
