They are classed with soft tissue mesenchymal neoplasms, are benign and normally show a painless slow-growing character. Important is the differential diagnosis toward the liposarcomas, which represent a malignant version of adipose neoplasia and as well show a painless slow-growing character. Therefore, in case of clinical suspicion of a lipoma, a histopathological examination of the excisional biopsy has to be exercised in order to confirm the clinical diagnosis. The aim of the present case report is to present the step-by-step procedure of a lipoma excision at the base of the tongue and to give an overview of the literature.

We present a case of a 57-year-old white female with a left upper thigh mass located at the previous surgical site of the resection of a 15 cm, 505-glipoma 10 years ago. Magnetic resonance imaging showed a 1.7 × 3.1 × 2.9 cm soft tissue mass within the subcutaneous adipose tissues of her left upper thigh at the site of previous lipoma resection. No muscle or bone invasion was identified. The clinical impression was lipoma versus liposarcoma. The mass was surgically removed, and gross examination showed a tan-pink, well-demarcated soft mass with scalloped edges noted within the...

CONCLUSION: Radiomics is a promising, non-invasive method for differentiating between WDLPS and lipoma, outperforming the scores of the radiologists. Further optimization and validation is needed before introduction into clinical practice. PMID: 31747074 [PubMed - in process]

CONCLUSIONS: Currently, there is no evidence-based recommendation available regarding the management of lipomas detected during open or laparoscopic inguinal hernia surgery. Due to the extremely low risk of the presence of a liposarcoma routine histologic examination cannot be recommended unless the diameter exceeds 10 cm.

ConclusionsThere is a significant relationship between a radiomics signature, consisting of a combination of quantitative MRI features, and the MDM2-amplification status. Although further optimization and validation is needed for the transition to clinical practice, radiomics has appeared to be a promising, non-invasive approach for the classification of WDLPS and lipomas.AcknowledgementM.Vos and M.P.A.

AbstractAdipocytic tumors are frequently encountered in routine practice, and while the vast majority represent commonly encountered tumor types (e.g., benign lipoma), the heterogeneity and rarity of other adipocytic neoplasms can pose diagnostic challenges. Atypical and malignant adipocytic tumors account for approximately 20% of all sarcomas. The 2013 World Health Organization (WHO) classification of soft tissue and bone tumors recognizes four major liposarcoma subtypes, characterized by distinct clinical behavior, distinctive morphologies, as well as unique genetic findings: atypical lipomatous tumor/well-differentiated...

Abstract Lipid droplets, a morphological feature of adipocytic tumors, are strongly regulated by associated proteins of the perilipin/PAT-family. So far, the use of perilipins as markers for differential diagnosis of soft tissue tumors has only been studied in a few cases. The aim of the study was to investigate the expression of perilipins in 478 human soft tissue tumors as well as 60 respective normal tissues. All cases of well differentiated liposarcoma, over 90% of myxoid round cell liposarcoma and over 70% of pleomorphic liposarcoma, yet only in the well differentiated components of dedifferentiated liposarco...

Atypical lipomatous tumor/well-differentiated liposarcoma is a common neoplasm of the superficial and deep soft tissues of the extremities, trunk, and retroperitoneum. Atypical lipomatous tumor/well-differentiated liposarcoma is very rare in the orbit, with only 19 previously reported cases. The authors describe a 22-year-old woman who presented with an 8-month history of diplopia and was found to have an orbital mass on MRI. The excised tumor initially was interpreted as spindle cell/pleomorphic lipoma based on its morphologic and immunohistochemical features. Nine years later, the patient returned with a recurrence that ...
