Synopsis: 
The incidence of soft-tissue and bone sarcomas in Suriname, as well as their gender, age, and ethnic distribution, probably do not differ substantially from international patterns. However, overall sarcomas and leiomyosarcoma may have a predilection for Afro-Surinamese rather than Asian-Surinamese.
