Abstract

Cancer patients, particularly those post-surgery, are prone to skin infection following immersion in flood waters. We reported secondary surgical site infection in a postoperative 80-year-old post-operation breast cancer patient affected by Typhoon Hagibis. Individualized responses based on individual and environmental risks are crucial to alleviate the damage of disasters.
