Fluorouracil (5-FU) is a relatively unique drug in oncology because administration in different doses and schedules results in dramatically different patterns of qualitative toxicity. This lecture will discuss the hematologic, skin, and GI toxicities along with strategies for management.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Identify and describe the hematological, dermatological, and gastrointestinal toxicities of 5-fluorouracil.
  • Describe methods to manage patients with 5-fluorouracil-related toxicities.
  • Describe the use of uridine triacetate in patients with 5-fluorouracil overdose or in patients who exhibit severe adverse reactions.
