NCI Definition: A malignant neoplasm arising exclusively from the soft tissues. [1]

Malignant soft tissue neoplasms most frequently harbor alterations in KIT, TP53, CDKN2A, CDKN2B, and RB1 [2].

Most Commonly Altered Genes in Malignant Soft Tissue Neoplasm

KIT Mutation, KIT Exon 11 Mutation, KIT Deletion, KIT Exon 11 Deletion, and TP53 Mutation are the most common alterations in malignant soft tissue neoplasm [2].
