Liposarcoma is the most common adult soft tissue sarcoma. The hallmark is the immature fat cell or lipoblast. It occurs in late adult life, frequently in the lower extremities, in the retroperitoneal, perineal and mesenteric region. Retroperitoneal liposarcoma doesn’t produce symptoms until it is very large. A review of the literature is made and the case of a 65-years old man, submitted to surgical treatment for a bulky retroperitoneal mixoid liposarcoma is reported.
