Résumé : During the past decade, fundamental and clinical research have been conducted to enhance the efficacy of anticancer treatments and new drugs targeted on specific molecular events have emerged. These treatments are more efficient but also cause frequent skin side effects such as skin dryness, nail and hair changes. On a psychological and aesthetic point of view, this can be a real matter for the patients, and these skin changes lead to altered quality of life and modification of the self perception of the body. This book reviews research conducted on the topic of skin care in cancer patients. © 2012 by Nova Science Publishers, Inc. All rights reserved.
