Follow-up

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.
