Soft tissue sarcomas represent a heterogeneous group of rare malignancies, widely regarded as one of the most diagnostically challenging. Drawing on their collective experience gleaned from over 30,000 cases, this book offer practical guidance from leading experts in soft tissue pathology. Exploring topics with clinical, immune-histochemical and molecular correlation, chapters are organised in a clear, morphological structure. This valuable resource includes diagnostic clues for practitioners of all levels to override the challenges and pitfalls in patient diagnosis. Featuring a range of high-quality illustrations, the focus is on sarcomas, lesions of intermediate malignancy, and benign tumours, whilst also providing support in emphasizing the differences between these and pseudosarcomas. Readers can gain confidence in minimizing diagnostic errors, with this pattern-based, wide-ranging approach. This book includes entry to an online version on Cambridge Core, which can be accessed via the code printed on the inside of the cover.
