Introduction: Soft tissue sarcomas account for less than 1% of overall human burden of malignant tumors.
Our study was conducted in a tertiary care hospital in konaseema region to identify various histological
patterns of the soft tissue tumors along with their relation to age, sex and site.
Materials and Methods: 215 cases of soft tissue tumors were analysed both retrospectively and
prospectively for two years during January 2015 to January 2017. A careful histopathological examination
was done with clinical correlation.
Results: In a span of two years, we received 215 soft tissue tumors, 179 cases (83.2%) were benign in
nature, 18 (8.3%) cases were of intermediate grade malignancy and 18 (8.3%) were malignant. Males were
affected more than females. The most common site was lower extremities.
Conclusion: A vigilant Histopathological examination using Hematoxylin and Eosin stain (H&E) with
clinical correlation is still an important tool and gold standard in diagnosing various patterns of soft tissue

Keywords: Soft tissue sarcoma, Benign, Malignant, Hematoxylin and Eosin stain.
