Acral manifestations of soft tissue tumors.
This group of biologically diverse entities is united by topographic localization to the hands and feet. Categorizing tumors by body site narrows the differential into a short list of possibilities that can facilitate accurate and rapid diagnosis. The goal of this review is to provide a practical approach to soft tissue tumors of acral locations for clinicians, pathologists, and researchers alike. What ensues in the following text is that tight coupling of the clinical picture and histopathologic findings should produce the correct diagnosis, or at least an abbreviated differential. The salient clinicopathologic, immunohistochemical, and molecular features are presented alongside current treatment recommendations for each entity.
