Abstract

Bevacizumab (Avastin) is a recently developed monoclonal antibody, which targets the vascular endothelial growth factor signaling pathway, and is currently used in combination with cytotoxic agents as first-line or second-line therapy for patients with metastatic colon cancer. Hypertension is a known risk factor associated with the use of bevacizumab. In this report, we describe the incidence, etiology, and management of patients with this complication.
