Abstract

We present herein two unusual cases of multicentric liposarcoma which highlight the problems associated with the management of this disease entity. When the surgeon is confronted with multicentric liposarcomas, it is necessary to define whether they are secondary tumors or independently arising multicentric liposarcomas, since the latter situation merits a more aggressive approach. Guidelines for this differentiation are suggested in the discussion following the case reports. Surgery, which is often multiple, remains the mainstay of treatment, although adjuvant chemotherapy and radiotherapy are also usually required.
