Dr Abel Centurion speaks to ecancer about his recent case report and review of systemic treatment of renal liposarcoma.

He initially talks about what the case report investigated. He says liposarcomas are malignant mesenchymal tumours usually located in the retroperitoneum and they rarely occurring as a single lesion in the kidney.

Dr Centurion says that in this paper they represented a case of a 59-year-old male patient with a left renal mass detected by computed tomography scan. He underwent radical nephrectomy and the histopathological study reported a primary undifferentiated liposarcoma of the kidney without nodal involvement.

Dr Centurion explains that the objective of this report was to present a case and literature review with current evidence of treatment options and prognostic factors for survival. He also talks about the future of this study.
