Chemotherapeutic drugs have been shown to induce peripheral neuropathy which can become very painful, diminish functional ability, and decrease quality of life. Although Chemotherapy-Induced Peripheral Neuropathy (CIPN) may resolve completely in some individuals, others demonstrate partial or no resolution of symptoms. Presented is a case in which a female patient with a 2-year history of severe CIPN following the diagnosis and treatment of stage 3 triple negative BRCA 1 breast cancer was able to attain complete resolution of her symptoms after the use of subanesthetic ketamine.
