Primary liposarcoma of the diaphragm: a rare intra-abdominal mass

View Article: PubMed Central - PubMed

ABSTRACT

Primary malignant tumors of the diaphragm are rare, and primary liposarcoma of the diaphragm is extremely rare. The role of imaging is description of the anatomic relationships of the tumor as well as a suggestion of histologic diagnosis based on the presence of fatty and/or nonfatty components.

No MeSH data available.

fig4: CT-guided core needle biopsy of the area with septations and/or nodules (blue arrow).

Mentions: A chest radiograph showed right hemidiaphragmatic elevation and/or eventration (Fig. 1A). An ultrasound showed a heterogeneous mass (Fig. 2). Computed tomography (CT) of the abdomen and pelvis with intravenous contrast revealed a large (20 × 18 × 10 cm), encapsulated, subdiaphragmatic, mostly fatty mass with scattered areas of soft tissue nodules and septations, as well as a few coarse calcifications, overall compatible with a liposarcoma (Fig. 3). There was mass effect on the liver and the diaphragm with apparent eventration of the right hemidiaphragm. CT-guided 18G core biopsy was performed (Fig. 4), which showed adipose tissue with pleomorphic lipoblasts suggestive of liposarcoma.
