Treatment and Management
Treatment options for this paraneoplastic arthritis remain limited, since the underlying mechanism for palmar fasciitis and polyarthritis syndrome has not yet been defined. Overall, the prognosis for patients with this form of paraneoplastic syndrome is very poor; however, there are case reports that demonstrate the gradual resolution of rheumatic symptoms with successful management of the neoplasm. Treatment regimens, therefore, should incorporate a patient-focused, symptomatic approach and effective cancer treatment.
