With the treatment of leukemias and lymphomas, a serious, life-threatening adverse effect called tumor lysis syndrome may occur. This syndrome occurs when large numbers of cancer cells are killed or damaged, releasing their contents into the blood stream. The patient may have metabolic imbalances, which include gastrointestinal upset, hypertension, and paresthesias. Frhlich's syndrome is noted in adolescent boys who have an increase in fat and atrophy of the genitals. Epidermal nevus syndrome is associated with multiple nevi. Irritable bowel syndrome is marked by abdominal pain and disturbances of evacuation.
