Myxoid liposarcoma

Common Name(s)

Myxoid liposarcoma

Myxoid liposarcoma is a soft tissue tumor that tends to occur in the limbs (especially the thigh) of patients ranging in age from 35 to 55 years. It is defined by the presence of a hypocellular spindle cell proliferation set in a myxoid background, often with mucin pooling. Lipoblasts tend to be small and often monovacuolated and to cluster around vessels or at the periphery of the lesion (review by {4:Dei Tos, 2000}).
