Because therapy for sarcoma often incorporates histologic subtype, grade, stage, and anatomic location, establishing a specific histologic subtype often is essential. To evaluate the effectiveness of fine-needle aspiration biopsy (FNAB) in histologic subtyping of soft tissue sarcomas, we retrospectively reviewed 73 consecutive aspirates from 67 patients… (More)
