Main Article Content
Objective: To report the first case in Colombia of myxoid liposarcoma of the esophagus with clinical, radiographic images, histology, surgical and to describe difficulties in the diagnosis.
Methodology: We reviewed the clinical history of a 28-year old male patient. He was admitted to Hospital Universitario del Valle in Cali, Colombia with a clinical history of dysphagia, weight loss, and excessive salivation.
The initial examination (esophagogram, cervical CAT scan and endoscopy) demonstrated a mass that was reported as a fibrovascular polyp. The finding of the pathological diagnosis was myxoid liposarcoma.
Conclusions: The rarity of this condition recommends report of its detailed description. The myxoid liposarcoma of the esophagus can be diagnosed if a patient has a history of a slow-growing esophageal mass with a low tumor density in computed tomography in combination with surgical resection and histological examination.
