Abstract: Using Chart Review Methods to Characterize Patients, Treatment Patterns and Clinical Outcomes in a Cohort of Patients with Multicentric Castleman’s Disease

Little is known about usual care treatment patterns and associated outcomes in Multicentric Castleman Disease (MCD). Information on the management of this disease can inform clinical practice, treatment guidelines and elucidate areas of unmet medical need. The design and execution of a retrospective chart review study of patients with MCD are described, highlighting general methodological considerations for conducting chart review studies in rare diseases.
