Effects of epidermal growth factor receptor inhibitor-induced dermatologic toxicities on quality of life
Quality of Life
Receptor, Epidermal Growth Factor
Toxicities, including rash, xerosis, paronychia, and pruritus, adversely affected QoL, and rash was associated with a QoL greater decrease. Younger patients reported lower overall QoL than older patients who had the same toxicities. The current results support using the NCI-CTCAE as a correlative tool for measuring the effects of rash on dermatology-specific QoL.
