Abstract:  Sarcomas of the breast constitutes <1% of primary malignant breast tumors. Liposarcoma of the breast represents 3–24% of the primary breast sarcomas. Liposarcoma can arise from pre-existing benign lesions like fibroadenoma or from lipoid tissue in the breast. There are only few cases of liposarcoma of the breast in young females reported in the literature. Liposarcoma of the breast typically involves women with age after 50 years. In this article, we present a young woman with liposarcoma of the breast.
