Combination treatment with BRAF plus MEK inhibitors is a standard of care in patients with BRAF-mutant advanced melanoma. In addition to dabrafenib+trametinib and vemurafenib+cobimetinib, a new combination of BRAF and MEK inhibitors, encorafenib and binimetinib, was recently introduced into clinical practice. Encorafenib plus binimetinib achieved similar efficacy to that observed with previously available combinations, but incidence of some toxicities such as pyrexia and photosensitivity, which have a relevant impact on patients quality of life, is lower. In this article, the case of a patient who received encorafenib and binimetinib within the phase 3 trial COLUMBUS is presented and discussed, with a focus on the clinical management during the pandemic caused by SARS-CoV-2 virus.
