Melanoma is a relatively common cancer and is often associated with a dire prognosis once diagnosed as metastatic. Immunomodulatory therapy with high-dose bolus interleukin-2 may provide durable responses, albeit in a small subset of those afflicted with metastatic melanoma. High-dose interleukin-2 is well-known to cause substantial toxicities, both acute and delayed. We report on a single case of syndrome of inappropriate antidiuretic hormone secretion in a patient with metastatic melanoma with metastases to the lung and liver which was associated with high-dose bolus interleukin-2 therapy.
