Retroperitoneal Sarcoma Involving the Inferior Vena Cava
Soft tissue sarcomas (STS) are a group of rare diseases that account for less than 1 % of all adult cancers, with an estimated incidence of 4–5/100,000/year in Europe. Approximately 15 % of them arise in the retroperitoneum. The vast majority of STS originate from the connective tissue, while only a minority arises from viscera, with vessels included.
