Bleomycin gives rise to lesions similar to those seen with oxygen toxicity; they are dose dependent and aggravated by pulmonary irradiation. To avoid this complication the cumulative dose should not exceed 250 mg/m 2. With doses of 450 mg/m 2 10%-20% of patients will be affected. Metaplasia of type II pneumocytes, intra-alveolar and interstitial oedema and fibrosis occur and may be irreversible and fatal in up to 50/~ of patients. A similar picture is seen with nitrosoureas in doses of 1000-1500 mg/m2, mitomycin C, busulphan, cyclophosphamide, chlorambucil and methotrexate.
