Abstract

Abstract: Regorafenib is treatment option of cancers. It is associated with several adverse effects, including proteinuria. We report a massive proteinuria associated with regorafenib which resolved quickly after discontinuation of the drug. A 63 year old male presented with diarrhea and bilateral swallowing of legs. In urinanalysis, 18.5 g/day of proteinuria was detected. All symptoms, including proteinuria, resolved after discontinuation of regorafenib. Despite cessation of regorafenib treatment is advised in case of proteinuria, we suggest that regorafenib associated proteinuria could be rapidly resolved after discontinuation of the drug.
