However, have recently been reported serious adverse effects related to administration, including stomatitis. Mouth ulcers are the most frequent oral adverse effect and relate to the lack of supplemental folic acid, iatrogenic errors caused by ingestion or drug interactions.

Keywords : methotrexate; oral ulceration; mucositis; drug-induced stomatitis.
