Sarcomas are a rare group of tumors that can occur anywhere in the body. Over 50 subtypes exist, with variable degrees of aggressiveness and responsiveness to therapy. Soft-tissue (or those arising in connective tissue) and bone sarcomas are rarer still and comprise about 1% of all cancers diagnosed each year. In the past several decades, the recognition that many sarcomas respond to chemotherapy has led to a vastly increased array of treatment options and rate of long-term patient survival. Recent research has yielded many insights into the pathophysiology of these rare conditions and new promising therapeutic agents are in various stages of clinical research. Part of the Oxford American Pocket Cards series, this concise, ultra-portable, up-to-date and attractively designed medical reference card provides essential information on the pathophysiology, diagnosis as well as on new and emerging therapies of soft-tissue and bone sarcomas.
