Granulocyte colony-stimulating factor-producing malignant pleural mesothelioma with the expression of other cytokines

Abstract

We report a 65-year-old man with malignant pleural mesothelioma that produced granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF) and other cytokines. At the first presentation, the WBC count was 8600 cells/µl and C-reactive protein (CRP) was 0.6 mg/dl.
