. They are the second most common type of soft-tissue sarcoma. Epidemiology Liposarcomas are typically found in adults, typically between the. Classically, pleomorphic liposarcoma was not permitted as the dedifferentiated component, but it appears that it rarely occurs in this guise, associated with atypical lipomatous tumor and expressing MDM2 (see Boland 2010)
Dedifferentiated liposarcoma is defined as the transition from a well-differentiated liposarcoma to non-lipogenic sarcoma of variable histological grade, usually measuring at least several millimeters in diameter. The dedifferentiation occurs in 10% of well-differentiated liposarcomas, a risk apparently higher in deep-seated lesions FISH is the most commonly used method to demonstrate amplification. 231,232 Immunohistochemistry for the MDM2 and CDK4 proteins can sometimes be helpful in the differential diagnosis of (1) lipoma versus atypical lipomatous tumor/well-differentiated liposarcoma and (2) dedifferentiated liposarcoma versus other pleomorphic sarcomas, though it is. Dedifferentiated Liposarcoma: It is a high-grade morphology tumor Myxoid Liposarcoma: This type constitute 30% of all liposarcomas; Pleomorphic Liposarcoma (PLS): It is the rarest type and constitute about 5% of all liposarcomas; Who gets Dedifferentiated Liposarcoma? (Age and Sex Distribution Dedifferentiated liposarcoma is the least common subtype of liposarcoma and usually arises from a well-differentiated liposarcoma (WDLPS). Progression occurs in 17 % of patients when WDLPS is located in the retroperitoneum and 6% of cases when WDLPS is located in the extremities The differential diagnosis between atypical lipomatous tumor/well-differentiated liposarcoma (ALT/WDLPS) and dedifferentiated liposarcoma (DDLPS) from their morphologic counterparts is challenging. Currently, the diagnosis is guided by MDM2 and CDK4 immunohistochemistry (IHC) and is confirmed by the

1 Introduction. Liposarcoma is the most common soft tissue sarcoma of adults, and makes up 15% to 25% of all sarcomas. It usually occurs in the deep soft tissues of the lower extremities and retroperitoneum of middle-aged adults. In the head and neck region, liposarcoma is rare, and is found in up to 9% of cases. Oral liposarcoma is even more rare, occurring mainly in the buccal mucosa and. AMONG the many and differential diagnoses to be considered by the physician and surgeon when confronted with a lump in the neck, one of the rarest is that of liposarcoma. The paucity of this tumor is exemplified by the fact that only four cases of liposarcoma of the head and neck were encountered.. An alternative differential diagnosis of liposarcoma with osteosarcomatous dedifferentiation was considered as well. A core biopsy was performed by the orthopedic surgeon using an 18-gauge Tru-cut biopsy needle. Multiple specimens were obtained through the largely ossified component of the mass, since it was considered to have the highest grade.

Liposarcoma is the most common type of soft tissue sarcoma (STS). It is divided into five groups according to histological pattern: well-differentiated, myxoid, round cell, pleomorphic, and dedifferentiated. Dedifferentiated liposarcoma most commonly occurs in the retroperitoneum, while an intraperitoneal location is extremely rare. Only seven cases have been reported in literature

Differential sensitivity of liposarcoma subtypes to chemotherapy Liposarcoma is one of the most common soft tissue sarcomas and has a number of different subtypes: well-differentiated; dedifferentiated; myxoid/round cell; and pleomorphic. However, the response of these subgroups to chemotherapy is not well documented Liposarcoma terminology has been inconsistently applied in musculoskeletal imaging, and it is important to understand that the term atypical lipoma is analogous to a well-differentiated liposarcoma, and is intended to distinguish the less aggressive behavior of liposarcomas when found in the superficial extremity regions Exophytic renal angiomyolipoma and perirenal liposarcoma: revisiting the role of CT for differential diagnosis Sungmin Woo, Sang Youn Kim, Jeong Yeon Cho, Seung Hyup Kim, and Myoung Seok Lee Acta Radiologica 2015 57 : 2 , 249-25 Differential diagnosis: Lipoma; lipoblastoma; hibernoma; neurofibroma. Cytogenetics may be of value when diagnosing lipomatous tumors because different tumor types have different more or less specific chromosomal abnormalities. Figure 5: Tumor specimen of a lipoma-like well-differentiated liposarcoma Liposarcoma is a complex neoplasm of adipocyte differentiation that usually presents as a painless enlarging mass with a slow growth rate. Liposarcomas are subclassified into the following distinct categories, depending on their histology, molecular profile, and growth behavior: atypical lipomatous tumor/well-differentiated liposarcoma; dedifferentiated liposarcoma, often an admixture of well.
Dedifferentiated liposarcomas are rare; localization of these tumors in the descending colon is extremely uncommon. We describe the case of a 75-year-old man with a dedifferentiated liposarcoma originating from the descending colon that manifested as partial bowel obstruction. The very uncommon presentation of this rare disease contributed to a challenging diagnostic process Liposarcoma is a cancer that arises in fat cells in soft tissue, such as that inside the thigh or in the retroperitoneum. It is a rare type of cancer that bears a resemblance to fat cells when examined under a microscope. It is typically a large, bulky tumor, and tends to have multiple smaller satellites that extend beyond the main confines of the tumor The best chance to cure a soft tissue sarcoma is to remove it with surgery, so surgery is part of the treatment for all soft tissue sarcomas whenever possible.It's important that your surgeon and other doctors are experienced in the treatment of sarcomas
The differential diagnosis of lipomatous tumors includes lipoma, the five types of liposarcoma, hibernoma, and lipoblastoma [5, 7]. On CT or MR, myxoid liposarcoma appears as a well-defined, multilobulated, large intramuscular lesion with a characteristic lacy/linear fat pattern Immunohistochemical studies are helpful in different differential diagnosis; Main points. Round cell liposarcoma - hypercellular and less differentiated form of myxoid liposarcoma; Local recurrence prior to metastasis; Metastasis to the lung (20-30%) Poor prognosis if round or pleomorphic cells are presen Both atypical lipomas and well differentiated liposarcoma show a ring or giant marker chromosome composed of material from the long arm of chromosome 12 , helping to prove that they represent the same tumour type 1.
