Sarcoma of the breast constitutes less than 1% of all malignant breast tumors and liposarcoma of the breast has an incidence of 0.3% of all the mammary sarcomas. A 47-year-old woman presented with a mass in the right breast and mammography was suggestive of a malignant lesion. Modified radical mastectomy was performed. The tumor was diagnosed histologically as a pleomorphic liposarcoma. The patient was discharged and her postoperative recovery was uneventful.
