Liposarcomas are tumors that appear to arise from precursors of adipocytes and are most commonly found in the extremities and retroperitoneum. They can metastasize to pericardium, but a primary liposarcoma in pericardium is very rare and generally has an insidious onset and often presents with complications. Treatment is primarily surgical; doxorubicin has a limited role in treatment. Now newer receptor directed therapies have shown benefit in liposarcomas. Primary pericardial liposarcoma due to its rarity is best treated at a high volume center. Here we present to our colleagues a case of primary pericardial liposarcoma in a young lady; whom we referred to a tertiary care center after diagnosis for optimum care.
