OBJECTIVE Improved staging systems for malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumor (MPNST) prognostication and management are needed. Consequently, we sought to identify clinical, pathologic, and molecular predictors of outcome in patients with/without neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF-1) associated MPNST. METHODS MPNST patients treated from 1986 to 2006 (n = 140… CONTINUE READING
