Desensitization protocol for angioedema induced by encorafenib in a patient with metastatic melanoma.

Mar, 2019

Encorafenib is an oral BRAF kinase inhibitor used in patients with BRAFV600 mutated melanoma (1). Generalized hypersensitivity reactions (HSR) have been described with BRAF inhibitors (BRAFi) (2), but remain rare. Desensitization protocols to overcome HSR by gradual reintroduction of small amounts of the incriminating drug up to full therapeutic doses have been proposed for vemurafenib (3, 4) and dabrafenib (5), but not yet for encorafenib. We describe a successful desensitization protocol to encorafenib in a patient presenting with an encorafenib-induced angioedema. This article is protected by copyright.
