Introduction and General Approach.- Ancillary Diagnostic Tests in the Diagnosis of Cutaneous Soft Tissue Neoplasms.- Mimics of Mesenchymal Neoplasms.- Benign Fibrous and Fibrohistiocytic Tumors.- Fibrous, Fibrohistiocytic and Myofibroblastic Tumors of Intermediate Malignancy.- Malignant Fibrous Fibrohistiocytic.- Cutaneous Vascular Lesions.- Perivascular Tumors.- Adipocytic Tumors.- Nerve Sheath and Related Tumors.- Genital Mesenchymal Tumors.- Soft Tissue Tumors of Uncertian Histogenesis.- Miscellaneous Mesenchymal Tumors: Smooth Muscle, Skeletal Muscle, Cartilaginous and Osseous Tumors.
This comprehensive, yet user friendly, volume specifically focuses on cutaneous soft tissue tumors, one of the most challenging areas in dermatopathology. The text is richly illustrated and written in a user friendly fashion, by well-known experts in cutaneous soft tissue tumors, with an emphasis on a practical diagnostic approach. The text opens with a brief introduction on how to approach soft tissue tumors, followed by a guide to ancillary diagnostic tests and a thorough discussion of cutaneous soft tissue tumors and their non-mesenchymal mimics. The entities are described in terms of their clinical and pathologic features and differential diagnoses. Key pathologic features are summarized in a table format. Soft Tissue Tumors of the Skin will be of great value to surgical pathologists and dermatopathologists as well as residents and fellows in pathology and dermatology.
