Rhabdomyoblastic differentiation in liposarcoma is a rare entity, with only few cases being reported in the literature. These cases were reported in either dedifferentiated liposarcomas or in recurrent tumours which occurred in the retroperitoneum. The present case was a rare case of a primary parapharyngeal well differentiated liposarcoma with a focal rhabdomyoblastic differentiation.
