Lipomatous tumors represent a common group of neoplasm in adult life usually presented as a mass. Authors reviewed 872 benign liopmatous tumors and 39 liposarcomas in the Department of pathology, SNUH during last 10 years (1978-1987). Among the benign lipomatous tumors, the ordinary lipomas consisted of 80.8%, followed by angiolipomas (11.4%), fibrolipomas (2.3%), intramuscular lipomas (1.8%), and angiomyolipomas (1.4%). Most of the benign lipomatous tumors occurred at adult life and were rare in infancy and childhood except for lipoblastoma. In our series, the peak age of liposarcoma at the time presentation was 50 to 60 years, and the youngest age was 17 years. The myxoid type was the most common and it accounted for 38.5% of the cases. The two major sites were the extremities and retroperitoneum. Thirteen cases out of 39 liposarcomas had recurred and 2 cases had lymph node metastases at the time of presentation.
