The retroperitoneal tumors represent 0.07 to 0.2% of all neoplasias.The liposarcomas are predominant forms of sarcomas, they can reach big size in the retroperitoneum, and they show like voluminous mass without specific symptomatology. The metastasis is improbable; the specific mortality is from 40 to 50% in 5 years since the diagnostic, and the prognostic depends of the histopathologic variety. The conduct is surgical and this consists in radical excision of the tumor, together with radiotherapy and chemotherapy, like palliative treatments. We present a case of giant retroperitoneal liposarcoma, differentiated of fusiforms cells; it is shown as a progressive abdominal distension with oppressive pain of moderate intensity; and the treatment effectuated was the radical surgical excision.
