Abstract

Background :The incidence of sarcomas occurs in less than 1% of all malignant tumors but sarcoma is the cause of 2% of total cancer deaths. Based on the National Registry the incidence of neonatal sarcomas is 2.6 per million live births.

Case Description : A baby girl aged 3 days, complaining of a mass on the patient's left thigh since birth. the mass was large from birth and there was only one on the left thigh. In the prenatal history, the mother and baby with routine ANC history to the midwife, and never having a control with an obstetrician, the mother was not sick during pregnancy and took medication during pregnancy outside of a doctor's prescription. In the perinatal history, the baby was born to mother G1P1A0, gestational age at term, was born by cesarean section, with birth weight 2800 grams, was born crying, active movement, reddish color, vomiting (-) genitalia (+) anus (+)

Conclusion : Soft tissue sarcomas (STS) require proper diagnosis and management. The results of rhomboid flap in the tumor resection area are better than skin grafts of similar shape and location and provide cosmetic advantages with very few complications.
