Although liposarcoma is the second most common soft-tissue sarcoma in adults, it is exceedingly rare in the head and neck. According to our MEDLINE search, only 11 cases of liposarcoma of the parotid gland have been reported since 1968. We report a new case of primary atypical lipomatous tumor/well-differentiated liposarcoma of the parotid gland in a 77-year-old man. Because only a very limited number of case reports and small series have been published on liposarcoma in the head and neck, we also provide a review of the literature on this uncommon disease entity.
