Soft tissue sarcomas are rare tumors. They may occur in any part of the body. Early step of management are essential because they directly affect functional consequences and survival of patients. It is very important to rapidly evoke the diagnostic of soft tissue sarcoma. Multidisciplinary discussion is indispensable at different step of the management: before the diagnostic to organize radiological check up and preoperative biopsy, before resection of localized tumor to decide the surgical procedure, with anatomopathological results to discuss an adjuvant treatment, at metastatic setting to decide a systemic treatment to start or inclusion in a clinical trial.
