Soft tissue tumours are diverse lesions arising from mesenchymal tissues of the body and present with
overlapping clinical and radiological features. Histopathological examination is necessary to arrive at a
correct diagnosis. The main objective of the present study is to analyse the trend and pattern of soft tissue
lesions in different age groups and sex.
Materials and Methods: This is a prospective study carried out in all the specimens which were clinically
suspected as soft tissue lesion. The formalin fixed specimens are processed and examined under the
Results: Out of 200 cases examined 97% are benign and 3% are malignant tumours. M ales outnumbered
females with 3:1 male to female ratio. More number of cases were seen in 31-40 years of age group
(30%) followed by 21-30 years (27%). In the benign category, majority were lipomatous tumours (87.6%)
followed by the blood vessel tumours (7.2%). Malignant tumours were seen only in males.
Conclusion: Histopathology is the gold standard tool for diagnosis and it needs thorough and very careful
examination to arrive at an accurate diagnosis.
