This book follows the long tradition of AFIP Atlases of Tumor Pathology. The text is aimed as a practical diagnostic aid for pathologists, cytopathologists and pathology trainees, but the authors believe that their clinical colleagues and others may also find it a useful source of information on soft tissue tumors and tumor-like lesions. Emphasis is placed on diagnosis, so the presentation is generally concise, yet more comprehensive on key points. Site-specific soft tissue entities covered in other Fascicles are often excluded due to space constraints. The authors emphasize diagnostically important information on immunohistochemistry and genetics, but also include additional details when biologically significant.
