Exceptional results in neuroendocrine-metastases-caused paraplegia treated with [90Y-DOTA]-D-Phe1-Tyr3-octreotide (90Y-DOTATOC), a radiolabelled somatostatin analogue



Exceptional results in neuroendocrine-metastases-caused paraplegia treated with [90Y-DOTA]-D-Phe1-Tyr3-octreotide (90Y-DOTATOC), a radiolabelled somatostatin analogue



Clinical Oncology ) 12(2): 121-123



The case history is presented of a patient with paraplegia caused by progressive spinal cord compression due to bone metastases of a neuroendocrine pulmonary tumour. After failed external radiotherapy, the patient received targeted internal radiotherapy administered as a fractionated treatment with intravenous injections of a total of 7400 MBq/m2 of [90YDOTA]-D-Phe1-Tyr3-octreotide (90Y-DOTATOC), a radiolabelled somatostatin analogue. This case history highlights the value of 90Y-DOTATOC in the treatment of neuroendocrine tumours and the importance and possibility of good palliation of neuroendocrine bone metastases.
