The clinical characteristics of chemotherapy-induced oral mucosal ulceration in a group of patients with acute leukemia were examined in detail in a long-term prospective clinical study. Differences in regional susceptibility within the mouth to the effects of chemotherapy were apparent. A reconstruction of the probable mechanisms involved is presented.
