Myxoid liposarcoma of the supraclavicular fossa.
Liposarcomas generally originate most often in the extremities or retroperitoneum, less frequently in the head and neck, and rarely in the thorax. We describe a particularly rare presentation of myxoid liposarcoma originating in the supraclavicular fossa. The mass was resected and has not recurred. We searched our pathology database for other soft-tissue tumors of the supraclavicular fossa and found no other case of sarcoma originating in this site. In addition, we performed a literature review of thoracic and neck liposarcomas to identify similar cases and discuss their clinical course.
