Primary liposarcoma of the male breast are very rare. The incidence of sarcoma of the breast is less than 1% of all breast malignancies. We describe a 72 years male patient who presented with a mass in his right breast which was slowly growing for 6 months. Fine needle aspiration raised the suspicion of sarcoma which was followed by a CT scan and metastatic workup which found to be negative. He underwent wide local excision of the mass. Received specimen was a 18.5x16x11 cm composed of lipoblasts along with large fibrotic areas, atypical spindle shaped stromal cells and mature fat suggestive of well differentiated liposarcoma. The deep resected margin was inadequate and the patient was planned for adjuvant radiotherapy to the chest wall.
