Paratesticular liposarcomas (PLSs) are mostly painless, slow-growing and extremely rare inguinal or scrotal masses. Reports of approximately 270 cases have been published in the literature so far, but only a few of them contain information about giant PLSs exceeding 10 cm in size. Correct diagnosis and treatment is important as PLSs tend to cause local relapses and distant metastases. Here, we aimed to present, and evaluate a dedifferentiated (24 cm), and a well-differentiated (12 cm) giant PLS in the light of the literature data.
