Abstract

A 64‐year‐old man with iliac bone metastasis from left renal cell carcinoma was treated by intraarterial infusion chemotherapy using vinblastine and epirubicine in combination with a biscoclaurine alkaloid, Cepharanthin. A good response was confirmed by computed tomography scan and the symptoms related to the metastatic lesion were much improved. Partial resection of the left iliac bone was performed when no viable cancer cells were found in the metastatic lesion.
