Abstract

Soft tissue sarcomas comprise a heterogeneous group of malignancies of mesenchymal origin. Although sarcomas can arise virtually anywhere, the most common primary site is the extremity. The development of metastatic disease poses a major clinical problem because it is seldom amenable to a curative treatment. However, with careful and expert multidisciplinary team selection of patients with metastatic sarcoma-balancing probability of benefit with certain toxicity-a combined multimodality approach may provide hope to a select few for prolonged survival and even cure.
