Without, I guess. But it's hard to imagine a context that makes it
understandable. In particular,
The most important case is to match all possibilities. In other
words, to ignore that aspect.
There is no singular thing for "that" to refer to here.
Also, the text there beginning with "In other words," and ending with
a period is not a complete sentence.
