Three cases of possible acute cardiopulmonary toxicity following the administration of vinorelbine are reported. The symptoms mimicked acute cardiac ischemia. However, neither ECO changes nor elevations of serum enzymes were observed. The outcome is favorable in 90% of patients developing this adverse event. The putative mechanism remains to be elucidated.
