The 2018 ESMO Clinical Practice Guidelines on gastrointestinal stromal tumours have been produced by ESMO in partnership with EURACAN, the European Reference Network for rare adult solid cancers. They are conceived to provide the standard approach to diagnosis, treatment and survivorship. Recommended interventions are intended to correspond to the ‘standard’ approaches, according to current consensus among the European multidisciplinary sarcoma community of experts.
New treatment algorithms are provided regarding management of local/locoregional and advanced/metastatic gastrointestinal stromal tumours.
