      Myxoid liposarcoma (M-LPS) is the second most frequent subtype of liposarcoma. Foci of fat on MRI are strongly suggestive of this diagnosis. The aims of this study are to (i) assess the prevalence of perfectly homogeneous M-LPS-mimicking cyst and characterize their associated clinical and pathological features and to (ii) identify helpful clues to prevent misdiagnosis when encountered with a cyst-like lesion in soft tissue parts.
