Dermatol Sinica 19: 271-272, 2001

Case report: A 19-year-old male patient was found to have osteogenic sarcoma of the right distal femur. He was treated with the intraveous continuous infusion of cisplatin and epirubicin. Fever, vomiting, diarrhea, and severe stomatitis developed three days after the cessation of chemotherapy. Physical examination showed painful well-demarcated erythematous lesions on his palms and the dorsum of the hands. The lesions spontaneously resolved with desquamation and reepithelialization within two weeks. A skin biopsy specimen was obtained from the left hand.
