The DNA content and regional DNA heterogeneity in correlation with clinicopathologic parameters and patient survival were investigated in epithelioid sarcoma. Such neoplasms preponderantly manifest diploid DNA content and a remarkably stable intratumoral and inter‐tumoral DNA content. Small tumor size (< 5.0 cm) and low S‐phase fraction (< 5%) were significant prognostic factors in this study. Ploidy status, mitotic rate, age, and postsurgical treatment were not significantly correlated with survival.
