Liposarcoma is one of the most common soft tissue sarcoma of adults and accounts for 1% in all malignant neoplasm. A liposarcoma of perineal origin is excessively rare, and preoperative diagnosis is difficult. Perineal liposarcoma was diagnosed in a 38-year-old woman. She presented with a large soft lump in the both perineal region of 4 months duration. We report a case of a liposarcoma on perineum which was treated with complete surgical resection without adjuvant radiation therapy. The patient has survived 2 years with no evidence of a recurrence.
