Further Outpatient Care

See the list below:

  • Patients usually require long-term rehabilitation and/or hospice care in severe situations. Treatment is unsatisfactory, and chance of long-term survival is poor in reported cases. [28]

  • In patients in whom no tumor can be detected after a comprehensive workup, routinely perform outpatient measurement of antibody levels with tumor markers and other tests related to diagnosis of possible malignancies.



Prognosis greatly depends on early detection of the underlying neoplasm and its stage at the time of detection.
