1/14. Giant liposarcoma of the esophagus: radiological findings.

    This case of an esophageal liposarcoma illustrates a polypoid lesion within the esophagus that extended from the left pyriform sinus to the distal esophagus above the gastric cardia. Contrast-enhanced computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) showed an inhomogenously-enhancing intraluminal mass, while video-fluoroscopy revealed that the mass was adherent to the esophageal wall and was associated with esophageal dilatation and diminished peristalsis. This ninth reported case of esophageal liposarcoma is the first described where preoperative radiologic studies and endoscopy showed broad fixation of the tumor to the esophageal wall.

2/14. Giant liposarcoma of the esophagus.

    Liposarcomas of the gastrointestinal tract are exceedingly rare. Only nine cases of esophageal involvement have been described. A 68-year-old woman presented with an episode of vomiting followed by extrusion of a polypoid mass from the mouth. This 10th case of esophageal liposarcoma is the first in the literature to report a recurrence 25 years after the first episode.

3/14. Imaging findings of giant liposarcoma of the esophagus.

    A giant esophageal liposarcoma showing rapid growth over 7 months is presented in 56-year-old man. It originated from the pharyngo-esophageal junction with a short stalk, and extended downward to the distal esophagus. A barium swallow study showed a large, sausage-like intraluminal mass in the dilated esophagus. CT and MR imaging showed a heterogeneous mass with a fatty component in the esophagus. A total laryngopharyngo-esophagectomy was performed and the histological diagnosis was of a well-differentiated liposarcoma.

4/14. Large esophageal liposarcoma: a case report and review of the literature.

    liposarcoma is one of the most common neoplasms of adulthood. However, it is exceedingly rare in the gastrointestinal tract. To our knowledge, only 12 cases occurring in the esophagus have been reported in the world literature to date. We report the case of a 42-year-old man with a pleomorphic liposarcoma arising in the esophageal wall. The morphologic, immunophenotypic, and ultrastructural characteristics are presented, as well as the results of literature review.

5/14. Primary liposarcoma of esophagus: a case report.

    liposarcoma is the most common soft tissue sarcoma in adult life while esophageal liposarcoma is an extremely rare tumor. In the world literature, only 14 cases of esophageal liposarcomas have been described. We report a 72-year old male patient who was urgently admitted to our hospital for acute epigastric pain with a burning retrosternal sensation, persistent nausea, vomiting and dysphagia. barium swallow, upper gastrointestinal (GI) endoscopy, esophageal manometry and CT scan, failed to accurately diagnose the lesion. After surgical resection of an esophageal polypoid tumor, the histological examination revealed a well-differentiated grade I liposarcoma. Diagnostic and therapeutic tools were discussed and the results of literature were reviewed.

6/14. Giant posterior mediastinal liposarcoma invading the esophagus: a case report.

    Giant liposarcoma is an unusual variant of mediastinal tumors. The case of a 73-year-old woman is reported. She presented with a posterior mediastinal tumor invading the third middle tract of the thoracic esophagus and the adventitia of the descending aorta, close to the posterior pericardium; a neoplastic thrombus 2cm in size was located in the upper left pulmonary vein. The tumor was completely excised by left thoracotomy, in extracorporeal circulation. The postoperative course was uneventful and the patient received adjuvant chemotherapy. She is currently alive after 8 months, disease-free. The natural history, pathology, and prognosis of the disease are reviewed and management of such lesions is discussed.

8/14. liposarcoma of the esophagus.

    Presented here is a report on an unusual liposarcoma of the esophagus. A 66-year-old-woman was treated successfully by surgical excision without removal of the esophagus. Thirty months after surgery and radiation she presented with neither complaint nor recurrence.

10/14. liposarcoma arising in a giant lipomatous polyp of the esophagus.

    A case of liposarcoma in a giant pedunculated lipoma of the esophagus in a 49-year-old Korean woman who presented intermittent swallowing difficulty for 3 years is reported. endoscopy and esophagography revealed that a giant smooth longitudinal tumor mass almost entirely occupied the esophageal lumen. A total esohagectomy was done. The tumor was 20 cm in length and 7 cm in average diameter with an obvious stalk measuring 3 cm in length and 1 cm in diameter. Microscopic examination disclosed a lipoma with focal ulceration and liposarcomatous change infiltrating into interstitial fibrous tissue at its distal end.
