The development of a liposarcoma during childhood is extremely rare. We report a case of dedifferentiated liposarcoma arising in the left thigh of an 8-year-old girl. Morphological and immunohistochemical studies revealed occasional rhabdomyoblastic differentiation in the dedifferentiated component. The identical cells were co-mingling with the well-differentiated liposarcoma component. This is the first description of such a case of liposarcoma occurring in a child.
