We report a case of mediastinal liposarcoma, a relatively uncommon neoplasm, in which the mass also appeared as a tumor arising in the esophageal wall. A 76-year-old man diagnosed with a posterior mediastinal mass had the tumor extirpated in local esophageal myectomy due to its unclear margin on the esophageal wall. The resected specimen was diagnosed as well-differentiated liposarcoma. Preoperative angiography showed the tumor received its blood supply from a branch of the left gastric artery, suggesting it arose in the lower esophageal segment close to the hiatus and extended to the mediastinum. Since this tumor's growth pattern differed completely from esophageal liposarcoma described in previous case reports, we concluded that it was mediastinal liposarcoma.
