Management of Patients with Acute Methotrexate Nephrotoxicity with High-Dose Leucovorin
Neoplasm Recurrence, Local
Patients who had 100 episodes of HDMTX-associated acute kidney injury were treated with a strategy that only included usual supportive measures and high-dose leucovorin. No deaths were directly attributed to complications related to HDMTX. Glucarpidase, an expensive drug, may not be necessary for a significant number of patients.
