Abstract

We reported a case of acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) induced by docetaxel in treating lung metastases from oral cancer. The patient was an 84-year-old man who had undergone partial mandibulectomy and radical neck dissection for lower gingival carcinoma. The patient developed ARDS after docetaxel administration (40 mg/body) for multiple lung metastases.
