Abstract

The Hand-Foot syndrome (HFS) consists in an acute-onset painful swelling of hands and feet typically followed by a livid erythema. This syndrome is strongly associated with chemotherapy (5-fluorouracil, capecita-bine). We describe two patients with relapsed/refractory Hodgkin's lymphoma in which HFS occurred during salvage ifosfamide, gemcitabine and vinorelbine (IGEV) chemotherapy and was promptly relieved, and later on prevented, by acetylsalicylic acid (ASA) administration.
