Weichteilsarkome (WS; Synonym: Weichgewebssarkome, maligne Weichgewebstumoren, maligne mesenchymale Tumoren, „Soft-Tissue Sarcoma“: STS) werden entsprechend den Regeln der WHO wie folgt definiert (Enzinger u. Weiss 1988): maligne Tumoren des nichtepithelialen, extraskelettalen Gewebes mit Ausnahme des hämatopoetischen, lymphatischen oder retikuloendothelialen Systems, der Glia und des Stützgewebes spezifischer Organe und der viszeralen Gewebe, eingeschlossen die Tumoren der peripheren Nerven und des autonomen Nervensystems.
