Abstract

We report the rare case of a giant liposarcoma of the posterior mediastinum presenting with symptoms of dysphagia and esophageal reflux due to extrinsic compression. A contrast‑enhanced computed tomogram (CT) of the chest revealed a large fat density mass in the mid and posterior mediastinum. CT‑guided biospy showed vacuolated cells (lipoblasts) with marked nuclear atypia and indistinct cytoplasmic membrane and hyperchromatic nuclei suggesting liposarcoma.
