5-Fluorouracil-induced coronary vasospasm.
ABSTRACT Cardiotoxicity due to 5-fluorouracil involves rare and life-threatening cardiotoxic events occurring in less than 1% of the patients. We describe a case of coronary vasospasm due to parenteral 5-fluorouracil, which did not recur with oral capecitabine. We also give a brief review of the cardiotoxicity of 5-fluorouracil, its treatment and prevention.
