Introduction: Renal impairment may alter the normal pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic behavior of chemotherapy drugs, thus increasing the risk of side effects. Everolimus was reported to have anti-tumor activity in bronchial neuroendocrine tumors (NET). Safety and toxicity profile of everolimus has been provided in hemodialyzed patients with renal cell carcinoma. Only a report describes the effect of everolimus in a patient with metastatic ileac carcinoid in hemodialysis.
