Abstract Soft tissue tumors in children and adolescents are an important group of neoplasms, pseudoneoplasms, and tumefactive malformations with some distinctive clinicopathologic, genetic, syndromic and therapeutic implications. In addition to the basic pathologic examination, there is the availability of diagnostic adjuncts in various settings based upon the histopathologic features in order to facilitate and/or corroborate a diagnosis. Immunohistochemistry, cytogenetics, molecular genetics and an ever increasing array of new technologies are available to address specific diagnostic questions and even potential therapeutic strategies. This review focuses upon some of the unique aspects of soft tissue tumors in children including the classification, approach to the diagnosis, grading, clinical and pathologic staging, therapy-related changes, pathogenesis and risk factors.
