Pediatric Oncology For many pediatric cancer patients, oral sequelae and discomfort related to their treatment can have long term and potentially lethal consequences. Learning to manage these patients becomes important because up to 90 percent of pediatric oncology patients may suffer an oral complication of some kind. One of the complications is the xerostomia. The resulting xerostomia is highly uncomfortable making the patient constantly in need of coughing to clear the thick, ropy saliva and in need of moistening the mouth. Taste sensation diminishes, eating becomes difficult, and patients frequently lose their desire for food.scholarly journals.
