A 38-year-old man was admitted to our hospital because of right chest pain and high fever. Chest X-ray and computed tomography scan revealed right pleural effusion and pleural thickness. Diagnosis of malignant mesothelioma was established by pleural biopsy. Serum level of granulocyte colony stimulating factor (G-CSF) was high. We performed extrapleural pneumonectomy which improved high fever and inflammation, however the patient died three months after surgery.
