Liposarcomas originate from the primitive mesenchymal cells of the soft tissue of the body’s extremities and retroperitoneum. Retroperitoneal liposarcomas are suspected once they become clinically symptomatic due to their size and repercussion to the adjacent organs. They are commonly diagnosed at 40-60 years of age with a slight male predominance. Contrast enhanced computed tomography scan and magnetic resonance imaging allow establishing the staging. Image-guided core needle biopsy can help in the diagnosis, but the specimen’s examination remains the gold standard. The authors report a 47-year-old female presenting the suspicion of a middle-size liposarcoma in the left paracolic gutter, safely removed by 3 trocars laparoscopy and confirmed at the histopathological examination.
