Introduction: Soft tissue tumors are nonepithelial extra skeletal heterogenous group of tumors which are classified on histogenetic basis according to adult tissue they resemble.
Materials and Methods: A retrospective study was undertaken in the department of Pathology MGM Medical College and Hospital, Navi Mumbai over a period of one year from January 2015 to December 2016 which included a total of 585 cases.
Result: Total number of cases of soft tissue tumors during the period of study was 585, of which 579 cases (98.98%) were benign, 3 cases (0.51%) of intermediate type and malignant type each with adipocytic tumors (71.5%) being the predominant benign soft tissue tumors followed by smooth muscle tumors.
Conclusion: The diagnosis and management of soft tissue tumors require a team perspective. Availability of a modern, more logical histopathologic classification and standard nomenclature now offers a better clinico-pathological co-relation. The clinico-pathological evaluation being the gold standard in the diagnosis of soft tissue tumors.
