We analyzed retrospectively data about treatment outcome with existing treatments in DTF.


Descriptive analysis of data related to diagnosis and treatment from all DTF was collected in patients (p) between Sept. 1999 and Nov. 2013 in 26 hospitals of GEIS . Ethics committee approval was obtained.


185 patients. Age: median 37 years (6-85) .63.2% female .Median time lapse from first symptom to diagnosis: 4 months(m). Location : trunk wall 81p (43.8%), extremities 50p (27%), retroperitoneum 10p (5.4%), Gastro-intestinal 16p (8.6%), Head/neck 6p( 3.2%), others 6p(3.2%), 2p (1.1%) missing . 20p (11%) presented a second neoplasia (throughout the whole process). Median tumor size: 8 cm(range 1-96). 3 p (1.6%) presented distant peritoneal disease. First treatment : No treatment 6p (2.7%), Surgery (S) alone 144 p ( 77.8%, 3p >1), S+radiotherapy (RT) 7p (3.7%), S+ chemotherapy (CT) 2 p (1.08%), S+hormonetherapy (HT) 3p (1.62%), S +HT+ Non steroidal antiinflammatory drug (NSAID)+Tirosin-kinasa inhibitor(TKI) 1p (0.54%), CT 5p (2.7%), RT 3p ( 1.6%),NSAID 5p (2.6%), HT 2p (1.08%), TKI 1p(0.54%), HT+NSAID 6p (2.7%). 128p (69.2%) became free of disease, in 49p (26.5%) residual disease remained . 61p (33%) progressed. Median Progression free survival (PFS) :109 m (95%CI 44.6-175.1).Multivariate analysis for PFS: extended/radical surgery(p=0.000) and tumor size<8 cms (p=0.001) predicted independently better PFS.Median follow-up: 36 m . 4p (2.1%) has died (1p tumor-related, 3p other causes), 113p (61.1%) are alive without disease, 66p (35.7%) alive with disease, 2p (1.1%) lost . Secondary treatments(ST): 61p 2nd line, 36p 3rd line, 40p further than 4th line. ST: 59 S, 29 CT, 17 RT, 31 other (11p TKI, 7p NSAID,6p HT, 2p NSAID+HT,1p NSAID+TKI, 4p unknown).

PR: partial response; SD: stable disease; PD: progressive disease; NE: non evaluable; NA: non available data.


Surgical quality and tumor size seems to play a relevant role in predicting PFS in DFT. Other sistemic treatments showed meaningful activity in progressive disease.
