Liposarcoma is a malignancy of fat cells and is the most frequent soft tissue sarcoma localized in the retroperitoneum. It can reach substantial proportions. It is a slow-growing tumor, and the most frequent symptom is nonspecific abdominal pain and diffuse abdominal enlargement. Treatment is radical surgery and complete resection is essential for local control of the disease.We present a case of giant right retroperitoneal liposarcoma, which was well-encapsulated and could be completely excised. The patient is currently in follow up and at 2 years is disease-free.
