Paratesticular liposarcoma (PLS) are rare malignant neoplasms; which are derived from mesodermal
tissues. They are slow growing tumors and tumors of size greater than 10cm are quite rare. There is no
standardized guideline for management. A case of a giant well differentiated PLS measuring 26x24x12cm was encountered and
is being described.
