    Summary: This book focuses on the subsets of soft tissue tumors that show adipocytic, vascular or skeletal muscle differentiation. It reviews the surgical pathologists approach to diagnosing soft tissue tumors guided by vital morphological and immunohistochemical data in the differential diagnosis of this family of tumors. Written by experts in the field, the text contains a concise yet comprehensive summary of the current status of the field that helps guide diagnosis and patient management, and stimulates investigative efforts. The book is filled with high-quality drawings of the salient histologic features of these various tumors, alongside photomicrographs and tips and tricks that help the relatively untrained or inexperienced eye to recognize the various structures or cell types that comprise each of these lesions. This innovative approach seeks to make recognition of these tumors easier. Adipocytic, Vascular and Skeletal Muscle Tumors serves as a valuable resource for pathologists, oncologists, surgeons, and researchers dealing with and interested in these complex and challenging tumors.
