Abstract

Liposarcoma is the second most common soft tissue sarcoma next to malignant fibrous histiocytoma and occurs almost exclusively in adults. It is thought to originate from primitive mesenchymal cells rather than from mature adipose tissue. Most liposarcomas usually occur in the deep soft tissue of the extremities and the retroperitoneum, and rarely occur in the cutaneous or subcutaneous tissue. We report a case of an atypical lipomatous tumor in a 63-year-old male, who presented with an asymptomatic, subcutaneous mass on his right axilla.
