Low power photomicrograph of the resected specimen shows large numbers of low-grade ""signet ring"" lipoblasts with a myxoid pattern along with cord like patterns of small capillary tubes that is quite characteristic of a myxoid liposarcoma. This lesion was treated by wide resection followed by postoperative radiation therapy. There is a relatively low chance for pulmonary metastasis or local recurrence.
