Abstract

Liposarcoma is the most common paratesticular scrotal malignancy. Ultrasound is the conventional imaging modality for evaluating scrotal masses. Contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) can provide complementary information by identifying distinct enhancement patterns. We present CEUS findings of 2 concurrent soft tissue masses in 1 patient: a spermatic cord well-differentiated liposarcoma and a retroperitoneal dedifferentiated liposarcoma. We review the Doppler ultrasound, computed tomography, and histopathologic appearances of low- versus high-grade liposarcomas in addition to the utility of CEUS with quantitative analysis in potentially grading liposarcomas.
