Soft tissue sarcomas are a heterogeneous group of neoplasias that due to their often clinically silent appearance often remain undetected or experience delayed treatment. Especially soft tissue swelling is often misinterpreted by patients and doctors and trivialized or verified with an incorrect biopsy technique. The hereby evoked complications for the patients are serious and may be reduced by simply following the available guidelines. The treatment of soft tissue sarcomas requires a close interdisciplinary coordination between specialists in tumor orthopedics, oncology, radiology, pathology and radiotherapy. On the basis of a selective literature review, the following article points out the current evidence on the treatment and illustrates a treatment algorithm.
This article was published in the following journal.

Published materials which provide an examination of recent or current literature. Review articles can cover a wide range of subject matter at various levels of completeness and comprehensiveness based on analyses of literature that may include research findings. The review may reflect the state of the art. It also includes reviews as a literary form.
Injuries of tissue other than bone. The concept is usually general and does not customarily refer to internal organs or viscera. It is meaningful with reference to regions or organs where soft tissue (muscle, fat, skin) should be differentiated from bones or bone tissue, as "soft tissue injuries of the hand".
An article or book published after examination of published material on a subject. It may be comprehensive to various degrees and the time range of material scrutinized may be broad or narrow, but the reviews most often desired are reviews of the current literature. The textual material examined may be equally broad and can encompass, in medicine specifically, clinical material as well as experimental research or case reports. State-of-the-art reviews tend to address more current matters. A review of the literature must be differentiated from HISTORICAL ARTICLE on the same subject, but a review of historical literature is also within the scope of this publication type.
