Introduction: Soft tissue tumors are variegated and heterogeneous collection of tumors. Diagnosis and
proper management is essential of these tumors. In our study we recorded detailed clinical history with
examination of patients from records including age, sex, site of tumor. Also record different microscopic
patterns and incidence of soft tissue tumors.
Materials and Methods: Total 360 cases we analyzed in June 2008 to June 2012 in our tertiary care centre.
We used some special stains & immunohistochemical markers in doubtful case where ever possible.
Results: There are total 360 (9.9%) soft tissue tumors obtained from all tumors received, 330(91.7%) were
benign and 30 (8.3%) were malignant. Highest prevalence of benign tumors had in 21 to 30 years of age
and of malignant in 41 to 50 years. Lipoma is most common tumor in benign (52.4%), while liposarcoma
(33.3%) of malignant tumors. Males (55.8%) having high incidence in benign as well as malignant tumors
than females (44.2%). Extremities are commonest location for both benign and malignant followed by
head and neck. Immunohistochemistry is done in 15 cases only to confirm the diagnosis.
Conclusions: The clinicomorphological evaluation of soft tissue tumors is gold standard in present days
also for diagnosis and management especially in the institute where the new techniques like IHC &
molecular pathology are not available. But the immunohistochemistry is needed for proper diagnosis,
further management of patients and correct classification of tumors.

Keywords: Benign, Malignant soft tissue tumors, Lipoma.
