  • Category Type: Fatty
  • Category Sub Type: Malignant
  • Location: Thigh
  • Age: 49
  • Sex: M
  • Treatment: Resection
  • Image ID: 2158

  • Images relating to this case: 2156 , 2157 , 2158.

This axial T2-weighted image shows the high signal features of a fatty tumor just posterior to the medial septum. This tumor was widely resected and histologically the pathologist did find a few areas of low-grade but malignant lipoblasts to establish the diagnosis of a well-differentiated liposarcoma or atypical lipoma. The chance for local recurrence runs as high as 30-50% but no radiation therapy is indicated.
