A 65-year-old man with rapidly progressing small cell lung cancer found in the course of renal failure is reported. The patient had a medical history of hypertension, diabetes mellitus, and cardiovascular disease. Hemodialysis was introduced following renal failure, but pneumonia resulted in a transient exacerbation and his complaint of general fatigue did not improve. Examination for the fatigue revealed no apparent abnormalities. Three months later, he died of small cell lung cancer.
