A total of 91 well-differentiated lipomatous tumors of the extremity and trunk were identified from a soft tissue tumor database between July 1982 and June 2001. A soft tissue pathologist, blinded to prior diagnosis and clinical outcome, reviewed histology. Those composed predominantly of mature adipose tissue with scattered atypical… CONTINUE READING
