Peripheral neuropathy is the major adverse event during administration of the taxanes, including paclitaxel and docetaxel. Among oral adverse events, oral mucositis is relatively common, but the occurrence of trigeminal nerve disorders is rare. Two cases of trigeminal nerve disorders, one involving the inferior alveolar nerve, the buccal nerve and the lingual nerve and the other the lingual nerve, caused by docetaxel are presented.
