Introduction Liposarcoma is the most common malignant tumor of the retroperitoneum. We report a case of huge retroperitoneal liposarcoma weighing 44 kg that was successfully resected. Case presentation A 53-year-old Egyptian male patient was presented to our department with progressive abdominal enlargement. Computed tomography scans of the chest, the abdomen, and the pelvis revealed a huge pelviabdominal mass highly suggestive of liposarcoma. Abdominal exploration was performed with resection of a huge retroperitoneal mass weighing 44 kg that was proven pathologically to be liposarcoma. Conclusion Despite the huge size of retroperitoneal liposarcomas, they can be surgically resected successfully.
