Primary intracardiac liposarcomas are among the rarest tumors of the heart, with a total of six reported cases. The previous reports have focused on clinical features with minimal histologic documentation. We report a primary right atrial liposarcoma showing extracardiac spread and three types of histologic differentiation. This case demonstrated that certain clinical and pathologic features are common to all intracavitary cardiac neoplasms, emphasizing the need for careful histologic examination.
