Abstract

OBJECTIVE. Head and neck sarcomas are a complex, heterogeneous group of tumors that present a diagnostic challenge to radiologists because they have many overlapping imaging features. The purpose of this article is to review the imaging and clinical features and highlight distinguishing features of head and neck sarcomas. CONCLUSION. An understanding of characteristic imaging and clinical features of head and neck sarcomas is important for the radiologist to narrow the differential diagnosis and help guide management.
