Description:

In today’s era of genomic testing, targeted cancer therapies, and increased cancer survivorship, recognition and management of oncologic disease in children is becoming more important to address. This book familiarizes clinicians with the range of oncologic issues that pediatric dermatologists encounter, including the diagnosis and management of various skin tumors, cutaneous reactions to cancer therapies, and both acute and long term complications of cancer therapy.

Written and edited by experts in the field, Pediatric Skin Tumors and Cutaneous Reactions to Cancer Therapy explores these important topics, beginning with the discussion of various skin tumors, and associated genetic syndromes, followed by chapters on acute cutaneous reactions to traditional and targeted cancer therapies, graft versus host disease, and opportunistic skin infections. This book concludes with the discussion of both malignant and nonmalignant late effects of the skin in childhood cancer survivors.

User’s Review:

“This book is a unique combination of information about pediatric malignancies and cutaneous reactions encountered from drugs, biological agents, and radiation therapies used to treat these tumors. … The authors provide an excellent overview of what one can typically expect in skin reactions from cancer therapies, the course of presentation, permanent changes, pathophysiology, and treatment limitations. Because this is such a specialized field, this is probably the most helpful resource that ties all these aspects together.” (Patricia Wong, Doody’s Book Reviews, December 21, 2018)
