The patient, a 79-year-old Japanese man, was diagnosed with the chronic phase of chronic myeloid leukemia and begun on nilotinib therapy in April 2011. The therapeutic response was major molecular response in August. About 19 months after the start of nilotinib therapy at 400 mg/day (November 2012), an adenocarcinoma (24x20 mm) confined to the head of the pancreas developed. In February 2013, a pancreaticoduodenectomy was performed. The therapy regimen was switched to dasatinib at 100 mg/day, beginning in April. The response was still major molecular response with no recurrence of pancreatic carcinoma in July 2013. There have been 29 reported cases of secondary neoplasms associated with nilotinib therapy. These secondary neoplasms were characterized by relatively frequent occurrence of papilloma (6 cases), gastric cancer (3 cases), fibroma (3 cases), and thyroid neoplasms (2 cases). The present case, however, is the first to be reported as carcinoma of the pancreas. This report describes the case.

Yetmiş dokuz yaşında Japon erkek hastaya, Nisan 2011’de kronik evre kronik miyeloid lösemi tanısı konulup, nilotinib tedavisi başlandı. Ağustos’ta majör moleküler yanıt sağlandı. Nilotinib 400 mg/gün dozunda kullanılırken ve tedavi başlangıcından yaklaşık 19 ay geçmişken (Kasım 2012’de), pankreas başına sınırlı (24x20 mm) adenokanser gelişti. Şubat 2013’te pankreatikoduodenektomi yapıldı. Nisan ayından başlayarak tedavi rejimi olarak dasatinib 100 mg/gün’e geçildi. Temmuz 2013’te yanıt halen majör moleküler yanıttı ve pankreas kanserine ait nüks saptanmadı. Literatürde nilotinib tedavisi ile ilişkili olan 29 ikincil neoplazi tespit edildi. Bu ikincil neoplaziler arasında görece daha sık gözlemlenenler papilloma (6 olgu), mide kanseri (3 olgu), fibroma (3 olgu) ve tiroid neoplazileridir (2 olgu). Olgumuz, literatürde nilotinib altında iken gelişen ilk pankreas kanseri olgusudur. Bu yazıda olgu tartışması ve nilotinibe bağlı gelişen ikincil kanserlere ait literatür taraması sunulmaktadır.
