Abstract

Introduction: Soft tissue sarcomas are rare and among them giant liposarcoma represents a very uncommon disease.Case Report: We report a case of a 64 year-old man affected by dedifferentiated retroperitoneal liposarcoma that underwent surgery in 2014. The postoperative course was uneventful and adjuvant chemotherapy was given. Two years later, he was referred to our department because of changing in bowel habits, and nausea. CT scan revealed a huge abdominal mass infiltrating left colon and ileum. Radical re-surgery with colonic and ileal resection was performed.Conclusion: Liposarcoma and giant liposarcomas are rare. A multidisciplinary approach and surgery are suggested even in recurrences.
