BACKGROUND Myxofibrosarcomas (MFS) are characterized by tumor progression with increased metastases after local recurrences (LR). Few series had appropriately addressed what parameters independently affect prognosis. METHODS Seventy primary localized MFS were analyzed for local recurrence-free survival (LRFS), metastasis-free survival (MeFS), and disease-specific survival (DSS). Follow-up was obtained in 61 cases. RESULTS Thirty-eight males and 32 females had primary tumors ranging from 1.5… CONTINUE READING
