Liposarcomas account for 20% of soft tissue sarcomas. It is rare in head and neck region particularly in the form of subcutaneous mass in the neck. There is paucity of information on head and neck subcutaneous liposarcomas of spindle cell atypical lipomatous tumor/well differentiated liposarcoma type (S-WDL/ALT). We encountered a case of S-WDL/ALT in 56 year old male who underwent surgical excision as a treatment modality and was kept for follow-up. At 1 year follow up the patient is free of disease. We present this case to highlight the fact that, this type of liposarcoma behaves in low grade less aggressive form along with review of literature.
