Introduction: Soft tissue is composed of fibrous (connective) tissue, adipose tissue, skeletal muscle, blood and lymph vessels and peripheral nervous system. Soft tissue tumours are diverse group of lesions that arises from the supporting soft tissue of the body.
Aims: To study histomorphology of soft tissue tumours and to evaluate pattern of distribution of the soft tissue tumours in relation to different age groups, sex and sites.
Setting and Design: Comprises of soft tissue tumours studied during period of 2 years. Prospective and observational study.
Result: Out of 125 cases of STTs recorded, 117 (93.6%) were benign and 08 (6.4%) were malignant. STTs in general had male preponderance. Of all benign STTs, the commonest was lipoma (39.2%).
Conclusion: Molecular diagnosis have started to gain momentum in the field of soft tissue tumours, however clinicopathological evaluation still remains the gold standard.
