    In this presumed first prospective trial of soft tissue sarcoma spanning nearly the entire age spectrum, adding pazopanib to neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy improved the rate of pathological near complete response, suggesting that this is a highly active and feasible combination in children and adults with advanced soft tissue sarcoma. The comparison of survival outcomes requires longer follow-up. Sarcomas represent a group of rare tumors which arise from the largest tissue compartment of the body, but account only for about 1 % of all malignancies. Among this group of tumors, soft tissue sarcomas in adults are, in addition to osteosarcomas, the most important.

    Adult-type soft tissue sarcomas are a variegate group of malignancies. They are highly heterogeneous, because they are made up of several histologies and arise from virtually all body sites. 1 In addition, they are rare, and their incidence is approximately 4 per , per year. 2 This incidence does not prevent controlled trials, but pooling together different histologies and possibly. Soft tissue and bone sarcomas disproportionately affect children, adolescents, and young adults. Although considered a rare disease, sarcomas continue to have a devastating effect on these patients and their loved ones, and their impact on our society far exceed their relatively low prevalence.

Diagnostic Workup of Soft Tissue Sarcomas.- Imaging of Soft Tissue Sarcomas.- Classification, Grading, and Staging of Soft Tissue Sarcomas.- Immunohistochemistry in Diagnosis of Soft Tissue Sarcomas and New Techniques in Soft Tissue Tumour Pathology.- Surgical Biopsy Techniques and Differential Diagnosis of Soft Tissue Tumours.- II.

To help understand these differences in outcomes, we discuss the following issues with regard to the management of these patients with soft tissue sarcomas: delays in diagnosis, trial availability and participation, aspects of the.
