 Anti-cancer agents often induce interstitial pneumonia,induced by uracil/tegafur(UFT)is very rare. We report a case of interstitial pneumonia caused by UFT. An 85-year-old man with bladder cancer was treated by TUR-Bt. He received UFT from the day 7 after the operation,and was hospitalized for the purpose of radiation therapy 2 weeks later. However he was pointed out ground-glass opacity on his chest radiograph,which was diagnosed as interstitial pneumonia induced by UFT. He received drug therapy including steroid hormone. His symptom and image findings were improved by the treatment. UFT is a widely used drug,but we need to be careful that there is a little possibility of producing serious side effect.
