This article gives a brief overview of the common histologic subtypes seen in truncal sarcomas and discusses fundamental diagnostic and treatment principles. It also provides a general review of abdominal desmoids. For both truncal sarcomas and desmoids, recurrence rates are high, and definitive recommendations regarding optimal treating are lacking. A multidisciplinary approach to these entities therefore is critical to select appropriate therapeutic strategies for individual patients.
