In soft tissue sarcoma the-prognosis depends best upon:

  1. Site of tumor

  2. Grading of tumor

  3. Size of tumor

  4. Lymphadenopathy

sol:

“Prognostic factor clearly vary with time. Grade is a dominant factor in early metastasis, but in late recurrence initial size becomes equally important.”

As grade is the determine in both early metastasis and late recurrence, it is most important prognostic factor.

Prognostic factors of soft tissue sarcoma

Bad: - High histological grade

  • Size >5cm

  • Deep location

  • Recurrent disease

  • Histological subtype of leiomyosarcoma

Feature that define grade are cellularity; differentiation, pleomorphism necrosis and the number of metastasis.
