Abstract:

An adult female patient underwent repeated neurosurgical procedures, radiosurgery, radiation therapy and chemotherapy for a recurrent and metastatic anaplastic papillary tumor of the pineal region. For a radiographically assured new relapse, she was treated with the anti-death receptor one antibody pembrolizumab given infused at a dose of 2mg/kg every two weeks. Within a year, the tumor manifestations of the patient shrank continuously and she achieved complete remission which remained stable since now more than a year. The therapy was discontinued after eighteen months. The report of efficacy of cancer immune therapy in an advanced patient shows a treatment opportunity in this orphan disease.
