Creation of nomograms to predict survival in patients with a rare soft tissue sarcoma

Takeaway

  • Validated nomograms for malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumor (MPNST) were constructed by analyzing data from a large public cancer database.

Why this matters

  • MPNST is an extremely rare soft tissue sarcoma and little is known about prognostic factors of the disease.

  • This is the first study to construct externally validated nomograms predicting survival for MPNST.
