Abstract

This case report reviews some of the clinical aspects of epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) inhibitor-induced rash, and, more importantly, it describes a specific case in which the diagnosis of such a rash occurred by means of a patient-initiated photographic electronic communication. The fact that this electronic communication was patient-initiated suggests that health care providers will likely be asked to make clinical decisions based on this type of communication soon and that this type of seemingly low-cost approach will likely become an important aspect of cancer symptom control and palliative care in the future.
