abstract

  • Dermatologic toxicities related to cancer therapies have become even more common with the use of targeted treatments. A proactive approach is necessary to reduce the pain and suffering these patients experience. The oncologist should become comfortable in preventing and managing these complications to keep patients on optimal drugs and doses. At the NCCN 20th Annual Conference, Dr. Mario E. Lacouture advised clinicians on appropriate strategies to manage rash, paronychia, alopecia, and other dermatologic conditions frequently seen in patients with cancer.
