Dr. M. Gunasundari, Dr. C. Aja

Abstract


BACKGROUND: Retroperitoneal tumors are rare tumors and approximately 1/3 are soft tissue sarcomas. This is a retrospective
study to review the tumors which were reported in our institution and to highlight on rare tumors occurring in this site.
MATERIALS AND METHODS: Totally 72 cases of retroperitoneal tumors were analyzed retrospectively from August 2015 to July
2018 for 3 years in Government Mohankumaramangalam Medical College Hospital, Salem ,Tamilnadu.
RESULTS: In this study of 72 cases, Soft tissue tumors constituted 35%, which were mostly malignant (68%), Sympathetic
nervous tissue tumors and extra adrenal tumors constituted 21% ,Small round cell tumours -14%, Germ cell tumors- 5%,
Gastrointestinal stromal tumors(GIST)- 4 %. , Pancreatic tumors accounted for 14% and tumors of lymphnode -7%.
CONCLUSION: Sarcomas are the most common retroperitoneal tumors, liposarcoma is the most common and fibrosarcoma is
the least common tumour . Myelolipoma and Neuroblastoma are rare tumors and should be considered in the differential
diagnosis of fat containing tumors and Ewings sarcoma respectively .
