There are 5 histologic types of liposarcoma, as follows: well differentiated; myxoid; round cell; pleomorphic; and dedifferentiated. Myxoid liposarcomas (MLSs) represent a subgroup of liposarcomas. There has been no report of Myxoid -Liposarcomas in the abdominal wall.

Symptoms where, pain while walking, bleeding form the tumour surface, it was foul smelling. At last, the tumor was successfully excised, from the surface, where it was attached to the skin at heel. Which was diagnosed in pathology Myxoid-Lypo Sarcomas. Following standard principles, after complete excision, the patient received radiotherapy.
