Primary breast sarcomas are rare tumors constituting <1% of breast malignancies of which liposarcoma accounts for only 0.3%. A 58year-old female presented with a lump in the left breast of 2 years duration, gradually increasing in size and was associated with pain. On examination, she had a firm to hard large lump in the left breast involving all the quadrants. Fine Needle Aspiration Cytology was reported as phyllodes tumor. The patient underwent simple mastectomy. Grossly, the specimen was large, measuring 20.0×18.0×10.0 cm having a markedly variegated cut surface with solid and cystic areas. Solid areas appeared predominantly gelatinous. Histopathological examination of solid areas showed malignant spindle cell neoplasm with lipoblasts in myxoid stroma and numerous arborizing blood vessels. Focal areas had round cells with moderate amount of vacuolated cytoplasm. There were portions of necrosis and cystic degenerations. A diagnosis of primary myxoid liposarcoma was made and has been reported as it is a rare tumor in the breast with characteristic histopathology.
