Abstract

A 64-year-old man suffering from non Hodgkin's lymphoma in progression and resistant to conventional chemotherapy was treated with α interferon. In a few days he developed an unusual adverse reaction characterized by severe dermatological and neuromuscular toxicity. We describe the case and suggest a possible pathogenetic mechanism for this rare event.
