Fine needle aspiration cytology plays an important role in the preoperative assessment of soft tissue neoplasms. In a 40-year-old man presenting with a large soft tissue mass in the posterior aspect of thigh a diagnosis of myxoid liposarcoma was suggested on FNAC. Scrape smears of the excised mass showed an additional finding of round cell component. Histopathology confirmed combined myxoid and round cell liposarcoma (grade 2), which behaves aggressively when compared to pure myxoid liposarcoma.
