Background: The incidence of tumor lysis syndrome (TLS) has been reported in 42% of adults with hematologic malignancies and can result in serious laboratory findings and clinical manifestations. The clinical manifestations may be severe, leading to dialysis therapy and/or death. The exact incidence of these severe outcomes has not been determined; however, strategies to determine the risk for these complications have been proposed.
Carboplatin is a platinum chemotherapeutic agent introduced in 1981 as an alternative to cisplatin.
Background: Ifosfamide is a frequently used nitrogen mustard chemotherapeutic alkylating agent that is available commercially in either an aqueous or powder formulation. Documented toxicities related to ifosfamide include a unique neurotoxicity that has been associated with hypoalbuminemia, previous or concurrent administration of other neurotoxic agents, and renal dysfunction. Although data regarding ifosfamide neurotoxicity are available in adult medical oncology literature, studies regarding pediatric neurotoxicity are limited.
