Abstract

Liposarcomas are the second most common soft tissue sarcoma in adults. They occur predominantly in the lower limbs and retroperitoneum, whereas primary mediastinal liposarcomas are extremely rare. Liposarcomas are often asymptomatic and may reach a considerable size before causing any symptoms related to direct invasion or compression of other thoracic organs. We report a case of a 69-year-old woman with a giant primary pericardial liposarcoma causing cardiac tamponade and discuss its clinical and imaging features and surgical treatment and review the literature
