The Mucositis Study Group of the Multinational Association of Supportive Care in Cancer and International Society of Oral Oncology completed an evidence-based review of the literature for the management of alimentary mucositis.
The present manuscript puts these guidelines into clinical practice by presenting two cases of alimentary mucositis from cancer therapy. These cases illustrate the impact of oral and gastrointestinal mucositis on patient care.
