    Liposarcomas (LPS) account for approximately 15% of all sarcomas among mesenchymal neoplasms and 6% of primary mediastinal tumors. LPS, usually found in the lower extremities or retroperitoneum, have also been reported in the abdomen, vulva, and buttocks. However, primary LPS of the anterior...

    Liposarcoma occurs very rarely in the mediastinum. Patients often remain asymptomatic until it grows large enough to cause direct invasion or compression of adjacent organs. We report a case of a 77-year-old male presented with dyspnea of exertion and was found to have a large mediastinal mass...

    Objectives: To study unusual lesions in the mediastinum, which do not originate from the thymus, lymph nodes, neural tissues or germ cells, and tissues that normally engender pathologic lesions in the mediastinum. Materials and Methods: Of the 65 cases seen, 12 unusual lesion were encountered in...
