Oral ketamine has been found to be effective during invasive procedures in children with malignancy. To the best of our knowledge, analgesic effects of oral ketamine have not been reported in pediatric cancer pain management. We described a patient with end-stage cancer pain that was resistant to opioids and was relieved by oral ketamine.
