Microscopic description

Sections show scant tissue with abundant adipocytes of variable size with chicken wire-like blood vessels, in a myxoid background. The adipocyte nuclei show abundant nuclear pseudoinclusions, small nucleoli, focal vacuolization, focal enlargement and occasional nuclear membrane irregularity. Scattered cells show hyperchromasia but are without nuclear indentations. No definite lipoblasts are identified. No epidermis is seen.

Final diagnosis

Soft tissue, subcutaneous mass left hip, core needle biopsy:
- Myxoid liposarcoma.
