SANCHES JUNIOR, Jose Antonio et al. Adverse mucocutaneous reactions to chemotherapeutic agents: part I. An. Bras. Dermatol. [online]. 2010, vol.85, n.4, pp.425-437. ISSN 1806-4841. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0365-05962010000400003.
The local and systemic treatment of tumors can cause changes in the skin, mucous membranes, hair and nails. Accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment of side effects require knowledge about the patterns of the most common adverse reactions to drugs the patient may be using. The dermatologist must be familiar with the manifestations of certain soft tissue neoplasms, as well as with the adverse mucocutaneous forms of cancer treatment.
