Well-differentiated liposarcoma of the retroperitoneum: a clinicopathologic analysis of 20 cases, with particular attention to the extent of low-grade dedifferentiation.

Abstract

Dedifferentiated liposarcoma (DDL) has been defined as a tumor composed of well-differentiated liposarcoma (WDL) associated with or progressing to a nonlipogenic, high-grade sarcoma. One might expand this definition of DDL to include low-grade dedifferentiation (LGDD), because tumors with LGDD alone are capable of metastasizing. We studied 20 cases of… (More)
