Abstract

The severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS‐CoV‐2) pandemic poses extra challenges for the management and treatment of cancer patients. Scarce evidence has been published in the last months, and there is still no consensus on how to ensure the standard of care for these patients avoiding the risk of infection.1, 2 Therefore, in Lombardy (Italy) every institute, including IRCCS Maugeri of Pavia, is adopting internal procedures to reorganize the health care management.
