abstract

  • The authors recommend surgical resection for patients with the unicentric variant of CD. Surgical removal of a unicentric mass of hyaline-vascular or hyaline-vascular/plasma cell type is curative. Partial resection, radiotherapy, or observation alone may avoid the need for excessively aggressive therapy. Patients with multicentric disease, either hyaline-vascular or plasma cell type, do not benefit from surgical management and should be candidates for multimodality therapy, the nature of which has yet to be defined.
