Primary pleomorphic liposarcoma of the chest wall or mediastinum is rare. Most of the reported cases of the chest wall liposarcomas were low-grade well-differentiated liposarcoma and/or developed from a subcutaneous lipoma. We report a very unique and unusual case of primary pleomorphic liposarcoma of anterior chest wall entrapping the anterior wall of the thoracic cage with extension into the anterior mediastinum in a 46-year-old male patient.
