The Role of Molecular Testing in the Diagnosis of Cutaneous Soft Tissue Tumors

A number of soft tissue tumors are characterized by recurring genetic abnormalities. The
identification of these abnormalities has advanced our understanding of the biology of
these tumors and has led to the development of molecular tests that are helpful diagnostically.
This review will focus on the application of molecular diagnostic testing in select
mesenchymal tumors of the dermis and subcutis.
