There is no standard approach for treatment for CLAs. Treatment is often aimed at reducing and easing symptoms. A multidisciplinary, team approach to care and treatment is highly recommended and often necessary.
Medications that have been commonly used to treat CLAs include:
- Interferon-alfa 2a or 2b
Patients with chylous (lymph fluid with fat) effusions may be prescribed a low-fat diet.
Patients treated with Sirolimus or Alpelesib may be prescribed a low carbohydrate diet as both medications tend to raise blood sugar
Other treatments include interventional radiology and surgery.
