Abstract: In previous anecdotal reports, treatment with granulocyte colony-stimulating factor has been associated with pulmonary toxicity. In 35 consecutive admissions for chemotherapy-induced febrile neutropenia, transient hypoxia occurred in 12. 10 of the 12 followed treatment with filgrastim to induce neutrophil recovery. There was no consistent association with cytotoxic regimen.
