Retroperitoneal Liposarcoma Presenting as Bilateral Inguinal Hernias

Haley S. Lehman*, DO Ryan Qasawa, DO John J. Lim

Liposarcoma is one of the most common soft tissue sarcomas and has multiple subtypes, including atypical, welldifferentiated, and dedifferentiated. These tumors most commonly occur in the extremities and the retroperitoneum, and account for 20% of all retroperitoneal tumors. A 53 year-old male presents in the outpatient setting for evaluation and management of bilateral inguinal hernias. This is a case report describing a retroperitoneal liposarcoma presenting with bilateral inguinal hernias containing intraperitoneal fat from mass effect.
