Non-rash dermatologic adverse events related to targeted therapies.

Abstract

OBJECTIVES:

To provide background information and management strategies for non-rash dermatological adverse events.

DATA SOURCES:

Peer-reviewed journal articles, professional manuals, online sources.

CONCLUSION:

During the last decade, many dermatological adverse events of targeted therapy have been reported, including xerosis, skin fissures, pruritus, photosensitivity, pigmentation changes, hair and nail changes, hand-foot skin reaction, squamoproliferative lesions, Stevens-Johnsons syndrome, and toxic epidermal necrolysis. Although evidenced-based treatment options are scarce, many recommendations have been described in the literature that should be considered to apply in daily practice.

IMPLICATIONS FOR NURSING PRACTICE:

Nursing practice will be enhanced by education, assessment, and management recommendations.

KEYWORDS:

Targeted therapy; assessment; education; management; non-rash adverse events
