AIM: To demonstrate the pathological variety and highlight the surgical principles involved in the management of tumours of the iliopsoas compartment (IPC). METHODS: Review of four clinical cases. RESULTS: Adequate surgical resection or palliation was achieved in each case. CONCLUSION: Resection of IPC tumours is feasible but access to the most superior part of the muscle may be impossible. An extraperitoneal approach is advocated.
