Intra-abdominal visceral sarcomas are a rare group of mesenchymal tumors that require the use of distinct surgical principles and a multidisciplinary approach in order to optimize treatment. Surgery remains the only potentially curative treatment. Management and outcomes vary for the different sarcomas arising from viscera.
