Abstract

The DNA content and regional DNA heterogeneity in correlation with clinicopathologic parameters and patient survival were investigated in epithelioid sarcoma. Such neoplasms preponderantly manifest diploid DNA content and a remarkably stable intratumoral and intertumoral DNA content. Small tumor size (<5.0 cm) and low S-phase fraction (<5%) were significant prognostic factors in this study. Ploidy status, mitotic rate, age, and postsurgical treatment were not significantly correlated with survival.
