Scanning electron microscopy of subclinical gefitinib-induced hair changes
We examined a 78-year-old female patient, with lung carcinoma, taking gefitinib for 15 months. The treatment has no side effects with good tolerance and tumor response. Although the patient had not observed any change on the hairs under the therapy, some specimens were obtained to be examined in natura with scanning electron microscopy. Under low magnification incipient grooving was observed on the hair surface, tortions or angulations of the hair shaft were not found. With higher magnifications the surface grooving was even more evident. Our findings show that gefitinib may cause subclinical hair changes, similar to those...
