The toxic effects of CDDP, erroneously given at 450 mg/sq m, are described. Life threatening gastrointestinal and myelotoxicity was observed as well as prolonged severe renal tubular acidosis without renal failure. No significant oto (brain-stem evoked responses) or neurotoxicity (EEG, neurologic examination and nerve conduction velocity) was detected indicating major age-related differences in the toxicity of this drug.
