Abstract

Liposarcoma is one of the most common soft-tissue sarcomas and classified as five groups. Dedifferentiated liposarcoma includes multiple elements such as solid tissue, adipose tissue and calcified tissue, which is different from common liposarcoma in tissue constitue. Dedifferentiation to osteosarcoma is rarely described in the literature. We reported the radiological and pathological findings in a case of dedifferentiated liposarcoma with osteo-sarcomatous dedifferentiation in the retroperitoneum and discussed the characteristic features of this specific tumor. Complete surgical resection of the neoplasm is the only curative means, but establishing a prognosis remains a challenge for long-term evaluation.

PlumX Metrics

PlumX Metrics provide insights into the ways people interact with individual pieces of research output (articles, conference proceedings, book chapters, and many more) in the online environment. Examples include, when research is mentioned in the news or is tweeted about. Collectively known as PlumX Metrics, these metrics are divided into five categories to help make sense of the huge amounts of data involved and to enable analysis by comparing like with like.
