Soft tissue tumors are a relatively rare and diagnostically challenging group of neoplasms that can have varying lines of differentiation. Accurate diagnosis is important for appropriate treatment and prognostication. In the 8 years since the publication of the 4th Edition of World Health Organization (WHO) classification of soft tissue tumors, significant advances have been made in our understanding of soft tissue tumor molecular biology and diagnostic criteria. The 5th Edition of the 2020 WHO… 
Soft Tissue Sarcoma: An Insight on Biomarkers at Molecular, Metabolic and Cellular Level
TLDR
This review aims at providing a comprehensive overview of the most relevant cellular, molecular and metabolic biomarkers for STS, and highlight advances in STS-related biomarker research.
Time and Accuracy to Establish the Diagnosis of Soft Tissue Tumors: A Comparative Analysis from the Swiss Sarcoma Network
TLDR
All consecutive patients presented to the Swiss Sarcoma Network Tumor Board with a primary diagnosis of a soft tissue tumor over a 2-year period are analyzed, confirming the importance of a pathological second review by a reference pathologist.
Update of pediatric soft tissue tumors with review of conventional MRI appearance—part 2: vascular lesions, fibrohistiocytic tumors, muscle tumors, peripheral nerve sheath tumors, tumors of uncertain differentiation, and undifferentiated small round cell sarcomas
TLDR
A detailed update of soft tissue tumors and tumor-like conditions that occur in the pediatric population is provided, emphasizing each lesion’s conventional magnetic resonance imaging appearance, using the recently released 5th edition of the World Health Organization Classification of Soft Tissue and Bone Tumors as a guide.
Update of pediatric soft tissue tumors with review of conventional MRI appearance—part 1: tumor-like lesions, adipocytic tumors, fibroblastic and myofibroblastic tumors, and perivascular tumors
TLDR
A detailed update of soft tissue tumors and tumor-like conditions that occur in the pediatric population is provided, emphasizing each lesion’s conventional magnetic resonance imaging appearance, using the recently released 5th edition of the World Health Organization Classification of Soft Tissue and Bone Tumors as a guide.
Immunohistochemical and molecular updates in cutaneous soft tissue neoplasms.
TLDR
This article aims to review recent immunohistochemical and molecular updates in the diagnosis of cutaneous soft tissue neoplasms.
Common Pitfalls in Ewing Sarcoma and Desmoplastic Small Round Cell Tumor Diagnosis Seen in a Study of 115 Cases
TLDR
The most common identified reason for erroneous/incomplete initial reporting was expression of neuroendocrine markers, and contributing factors included keratin expression, older patient age and apparently unusual tumor location.
Establishment of A Nomogram for Predicting the Prognosis of Soft Tissue Sarcoma Based on Seven Glycolysis-Related Gene Risk Score
TLDR
A prognostic-related nomogram combing 7 gene signature with clinical influencing features was constructed to predict OS of patients with STS in the training set that demonstrated strong predictive values for survival.
Glomus Tumor of the Kidney Harboring Malignant Potential
TLDR
This work presents a unique case of an adult male with an incidentally discovered 2.5 cm right renal mass which, following an uneventful excision and a 12-month follow-up period, the patient remains disease-free with no sign of local or distant metastases.
Primary Pulmonary Alveolar Rhabdomyosarcoma in a Pediatric Patient: A Case Report With Literature Review
TLDR
RMS should be considered in the differential diagnosis of any lung mass with small round blue cell morphology in the microscopic evaluation and should be distinguished from metastatic RMS of other sites, pleuropulmonary blastoma, lymphoma, neuroblastoma, primitive neuroectodermal tumor (PNET)/EWING, and malignant peripheral nerve sheet tumors (MPNST).

Solitary fibrous tumor: a clinicopathological study of 110 cases and proposed risk assessment model
