We present a case of a patient with advanced cancer affected by severe pruritus not related with cholestasis and/or opioid treatment successfully treated with subcutaneous continuous infusion of granisetron (3 mg/24 h diluted in normal saline via a disposable elastomeric infusion device). Confirmatory studies with a control group are warranted to confirm these preliminary results.

Abstract

We present a case of a patient with advanced cancer affected by severe pruritus not related with cholestasis and/or opioid treatment successfully treated with subcutaneous continuous infusion of granisetron (3 mg/24 h diluted in normal saline via a disposable elastomeric infusion device). Confirmatory studies with a control group are warranted to confirm these preliminary results.
