Selected soft tissue malignancies of the foot: an in-depth study with case reports

J Foot Surg. May-Jun 1985;24(3):162-204.

Abstract

Soft tissue malignancies represent a diagnostic and therapeutic challenge to the podiatric physician. In order to improve prognosis and increase survival rates of affected patients, prompt clinical and histologic recognition of suspect lesions is necessary. Here we present information and case reports on selected soft tissue malignancies including Kaposi's sarcoma, malignant melanoma, synovial sarcoma, and epithelioid sarcoma to aid the practitioner in recognizing these serious lesions that occur in the foot.
