Case Report: Outcome and Adverse Events of Anti-PD-1 Antibody Plus Chidamide for Relapsed/Refractory Sézary Syndrome: Case Series and A Literature Review.


Sézary syndrome (SS) is an aggressive leukemic variant of cutaneous T-cell lymphoma with a poor prognosis and survival rate. Existing therapies for relapsed/refractory (R/R) SS have a low response rate with a short duration time. Herein, we presented three cases of R/R SS treated with the anti-PD-1 antibody and chidamide. Case 1 and case 2 showed the potential efficacy of this combination therapy with a long duration time. Case 2 and case 3 both showed that the patients developed acute and transient worsening of erythroderma and pruritus after anti-PD-1 antibody infusion, and this flare reaction was associated with transient decreased leukocytes and lymphocytes in peripheral blood. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report of the anti-PD-1 antibody combined with chidamide for treatment of R/R SS. This report suggests that the combination therapy may be a new and effective treatment and that further clinical trials are needed to prove it and elucidate the mechanism of this combination therapy and its flare reaction.
