Klinik für Orthopädie und Unfallchirurgie, AGAPLESION MARKUS KRANKENHAUS, Wilhelm-Epstein-Str. 4, 60431, Frankfurt am Main, Deutschland.

In soft tissue tumors of the extremities it is of utmost importance to differentiate between benign and malignant entities. The majority of the swellings vary from benign tissue changes through soft tissue sarcomas up to pseudotumors. Because of the low incidence of malignancy and the predominantly benign alterations together with a high heterogeneity, there is a need for a reproducible diagnostic and therapeutic concept for the treatment of all tumors of the extremities.
