Nausea and vomiting are respectively the first and third most relevant chemotherapy-associated side effects in pediatric oncology, despite the introduction of new antiemetic agents. Symptoms change according to the antineoplastic agents used, and are influenced by age since emotional and psychological aspects play an important role.
