(2) Well-differentiated liposarcoma (WDL), also known as atypical lipomatous tumor, is the most common subtype.
The key-point is to consider the possibility that the pelvic mass is a well-differentiated liposarcoma and to manage it adequately and thus, we recommend intact excision of the mass through a wound protector, and extreme caution to avoid any rupture of the capsule.
Dedifferentiated liposarcoma arising in the background of well-differentiated liposarcoma, with MDM2 gene amplification detected on fluorescent in-situ hybridization (FISH) testing.
There are different subtypes of liposarcomas, including well-differentiated liposarcoma and myxoid liposarcoma (16).
Atypical lipomatous tumor (ALT) and well-differentiated liposarcoma (WDL) are rare liposarcoma subtypes that are histologically identical but distinguished by the 2002 WHO classification: ALTs occur in surgically amenable locations, whereas WDLs do not.
Due to the infiltrative-like pattern of growth of IML, it maybe difficult to distinguish IML from a well-differentiated liposarcoma, just by means of diagnostic imaging modalities (ultrasound (US), computerized tomography (CT), or MRI).
However, the difference between a lipoma and well-differentiated liposarcoma (WDL) is often difficult to determine based solely on imaging [1-3].
The theory behind this system is that some STS with relatively low malignancy including desmoid tumor, myxoid liposarcoma, and well-differentiated liposarcoma often show lower SUVmax [12,13].
Liposarcoma is the most frequent histological subtype, and well-differentiated liposarcoma (WDL) and dedifferentiated liposarcoma (DDL) account for 90% of retroperitoneal liposarcomas [2].

This tumor was diagnosed as well-differentiated liposarcoma mixed type, lipoma-like, and sclerosing type, grade 1.
[2],[3]&[4] Dedifferentiated liposarcoma is a tumour which has a highly cellular non-lipogenic component along with a well-differentiated liposarcoma. It is most common in males over 50 years of age and occurs in the retroperitoneum, [3] followed by deep soft tissues of thighs, neck and head region, trunk, mediastinum and the spermatic cord.
