To provide current recommendations about fertility preservation for adults and children with cancer.
During the past five decades, dramatic progress has been made in the development of curative therapy for pediatric malignancies. Long-term survival into adulthood is the expectation for more than 80% of children with access to contemporary therapies for pediatric malignancies.[1,2] The therapy responsible for this survival can also produce adverse long-term health-related outcomes, referred to as late effects, which manifest months to years after completion of cancer treatment.
A number of different types of cutaneous reactions that affect the skin, hair, and nails can occur with cancer treatment. ONS PEP resources focus on those effects other than alopecia that are most often encountered, including rash, palmar-plantar erythrodysesthesia (PPE) (hand-foot syndrome), xerosis, paronychia, photosensitivity, and pruritus.
