Reliable prediction of the behavior of smooth muscle tumors is notoriously problematic at many anatomic locations. Relatively few studies have addressed the minimal histologic criteria for malignancy in smooth muscle tumors of soft tissue and the presently available criteria are not only inconsistently applied but also vary at different anatomic sites. It has been widely believed that the presence of any mitotic activity in a deep-seated smooth muscle tumor should lead to a diagnosis of… CONTINUE READING
