Abstract: We report 6 patients (1 male and 5 females; age range, 13-77 years) with hand sarcoma. The lesions were located between the digits and the distal end of the radius. A painless mass was the common manifestation in these patients. An incisional biopsy was performed on every patient, and histology revealed two low-grade malignant sarcomas and four high-grade malignancies. A surgical salvage procedure was performed. The 4 patients with high-grade malignancy underwent adjuvant therapy such as radiotherapy and/or chemotherapy. Four patients are still alive and exhibit acceptable function in the affected hand. Our surgical procedure is presented.
