Case Reviews

Colorectal carcinoma is one of the most common malignancies in the United States. Although amenable to detection and prevention via screening, tumors may not be symptomatic until they are relatively advanced, and both neoadjuvant and adjuvant techniques are important in the management of these tumors. Our understanding of the implications of the different molecular types of colorectal carcinoma has prognostic and predictive implications as it continues to develop.
