Mucositis is the degradation of mucosal lining in the oral cavity and GI tract due to damage from radiation or chemo-therapy.10 Mucositis is a common supportive care issue that deserves attention and is associated with many negative health consequences including pain, inadequate nutritional intake, and risk for infection. Patients with mu-cositis often require parenteral analgesics, nutrition supplementation, and anti-infect-ives to treat concomitant bacterial, fungal, or viral infections. Furthermore, mucosit-is is associated with economic consequences, primarily increased length of hospital stay.11 An understanding of the current guidelines for prevention and treatment of mucositis can help improve patient outcomes.
