Bottom Line: They rarely exhibit intra-abdominal location.Because the symptoms emerge later on, they often remain unnoticed until they grow large.No cases at this weight and radius, originating from descending mesocolon, belonging to the myxoid sub-type, were found in our literature scan.

ABSTRACT
Liposarcomas are one of the most common primary lesions of the retroperitoneal region. They rarely exhibit intra-abdominal location. Because the symptoms emerge later on, they often remain unnoticed until they grow large. Our aim in this paper is to present a case of myxoid liposarcoma of descending mesocolon origin, 40 cm wide and weighing 7000 g, seen in a 47-year-old male patient. No cases at this weight and radius, originating from descending mesocolon, belonging to the myxoid sub-type, were found in our literature scan.

No MeSH data available.

Figure 0002: Macroscopic view of liposarcoma

Mentions: The patient was operated under elective circumstances. In exploration, it was seen that the mass originated from the descending mesocolon and exhibited no retroperitoneal extensions pushed all intra-abdominal organs to the left of the middle line. The mass was completely excised, and because it originated from descending mesocolon, segmental resection and anastomosis were applied. The excised mass was approximately 40 cm wide, weighed 7000 g, was greyish-brown, and had a fairly smooth surface and a lobule appearance (Figures 2A, B).
