Skin sarcomas are tumors that are superficial and small in size in comparison with other sarcomas arising in intramuscular or intrabdominal sites. Skin sarcomas are often underrecognized and misdiagnosed. A high level of suspicion is needed, as early recognition and appropriate management including initial surgery is important for oncologic outcomes. Here, the epidemiology, clinical presentation, management, and surveillance of 4 common cutaneous sarcomas are reviewed.
