Abstract

Adipocytic lesions are tumors of mesenchymal origin, which can be either benign (lipoma, lipomatosis, etc.) or malignant (liposarcomas). Both tumors may share similar clinical presentations but differ histologically. Histology and tumor location are independent predictive outcome for longterm survival. Complete surgical resection is the main treatment followed by adjuvant therapy for malignant disease. We present two cases that were clinically similar but differ histologically.
