Abstract

Hand-foot or palmar-plantar erythrodysesthesia syndrome is an infrequent complication of chemotherapy treatment. Patients present to a variety of disciplines, including burns specialists for treatment. The majority of patients respond to a combination of appropriate adjustments to their chemotherapy regimen and topical supportive therapy to the affected areas. We report a case of the syndrome referred for assessment and treatment to our burns unit and overview the differential diagnoses of palmar/plantar epidermal loss.
