[The prognosis of female genital sarcomas of the adult woman with special reference to sarcomas of the uterine corpus (author's transl)].

Abstract

Report on 88 cases of sarcomas of the female genital organs. The sarcomas were confined to the uterine body in 72 cases. The prognosis of this disease depends primarily on the adequacy of the treatment. The treatment consists of as radical an operation as possible followed by external radiation and intra-vaginal application of radium. The microscopic type of the sarcoma of the uterus is of secondary importance. Patients who survived for 3 years following this treatment have a good prognosis for a 5 year or a 10 year cure. Other sarcomas of the female genital tract are mentioned.
