Abstract

Atypical lipomatous tumor or well-differentiated liposarcoma/dedifferentiated liposarcoma (DDLPS) is the most frequent subtype of malignant adipocytic tumor. This tumor typically presents in late adult life, most commonly in the retroperitoneum, extremities, or spermatic cord. It has been reported that the dedifferentiated component consists mainly of high-grade sarcoma, including undifferentiated pleomorphic sarcoma, fibrosarcoma, and myxofibrosarcoma, and it has been recently reported that the dedifferentiated component can be also made up of a low-grade sarcomatous component. Therefore, the dedifferentiated areas exhibit a wide morphological spectrum that commonly includes fibroblastic/myofibroblastic and fibrohistiocytic tumors but very rarely includes vascular tumors. We present here the first reported case of DDLPS with a hemangioendothelioma-like component in the spermatic cord.
