Dr. Ed Friedlander
Pathology 46 years experience
Guarded: J Bone Jont Surg 94:736, 2012 is most current. 50% of a small number of patients with low-grade somatic leiomyosarcoma were alive in 4 years. Among patients with retroperitoneal leiomyosarcomas, 20% were free of metastatic disease in 5 years and are thus possible cures. Try to have at least three pathologists sign off on the case. Good luck.
