Uterine Sarcomas

  • Rita Iovine Demopoulos


Sarcomas of the uterus are much less common than carcinomas, and all types of sarcomas combined account for approximately 4% of malignant uterine tumors. An analysis by Crawford9 of all cases of cervix and corpus malignancies revealed that sarcomas accounted for 2.6% of these uterine malignancies. Fenton11 and Novak and Anderson25 report slightly higher figures of 5.5 and 4.5%, respectively.
