A case of retroperitoneal liposarcoma after delivery with expression of estrogen receptor: Report of a case.

Kasashima H, Yamasaki Y, Morimoto Y, Akamaru Y, Yasumasa K, Kasugai T, Yoshida Y - Int J Surg Case Rep (2015)

Bottom Line: Here we report the first case of retroperitoneal liposarcoma associated with pregnancy and expression of estrogen receptor.Retroperitoneal liposarcoma associated with pregnancy is an extremely rare occurrence.In such cases, additional therapy for liposarcoma is important to improve prognosis.

fig0020: Immunostaining revealed resected specimen was ER positive (10 ∼ 20%) (arrow). A × 200, B × 400.

Mentions: The retroperitoneal mass weighed 7200 g and measured 43 cm × 40 cm × 13 cm (Fig. 2). Histopathological examination of the surgical specimen showed a well-differentiated liposarcoma (Fig. 3). Immunohistochemistry revealed approximately 10–20% of the tumor cells to be estrogen receptor (ER)-positive, with negative results for the progesterone receptor (PR) (Fig. 4). The patient recovered uneventfully and was discharged from the hospital on the 15th postoperative day. She and her husband were planning to try for another baby, so postoperative adjuvant therapy including hormone therapy was not undertaken. No recurrence was detected at the 3-year follow-up.
