Abstract

Chemotherapy is well known to both clinicians and patients for its ability to cause unwanted adverse effects. The skin is an organ commonly affected by treatment with chemotherapy, leading to presentations ranging from mild to life-threatening. Recognition of these cutaneous effects is important as they impact morbidity and mortality as well as patient compliance. This review aims to discuss several of the most common cutaneous side effects of chemotherapies as well as recommendations for their diagnosis and management.
