Temozolomide is an oral alkylating agent recently approved for the treatment of glioblastoma multiforme. It has a favorable side effect profile and is generally well tolerated. Although mild respiratory symptoms have been described, pulmonary toxicity that requires discontinuation of therapy is rare. To our knowledge, this is the first case of temozolomide-associated organizing pneumonitis.
