We here report a spontaneous case of primary myxoid liposarcoma of the greater omentum with subsequent transperitoneal recurrence. The primary mass was incidentally found during an exploratory laparotomy for a presumed diagnosis of trichobezoar or phytobezoar and was removed surgically. Histopathologic examination of the mass revealed the presence of a myxoid liposarcoma. Eleven months later, recurrence with severe transperitoneal sarcomatosis of the myxoid liposarcoma was noted and confirmed by necropsy and histopathology. A review of the literature revealed that liposarcoma in NHP conforms to the behavior and prognosis of this neoplasm in humans.
