Background: Liposarcomas (LPS) are aggressive soft tissue sarcomas which may demonstrate local and distant metastasis and often require a combination of neoadjuvant chemotherapy with surgical resection along with postoperative adjuvant chemotherapy. The disease is known for having a high recurrence rate and may present with symptoms specific to the involved system. Here, we present a patient who had an extremely rare presentation of recurrence within the colon. Case Presentation: The case reports on a 58-year-old gentleman who had presented with a local myxoid liposarcoma which was initially treated with neoadjuvant chemotherapy and local excision. The patient was then found to have a metastatic lesion in his lung, which was resected by an experienced group of thoracic surgeons. Unfortunately, the patient had again presented with abdominal pain and was found to have a metastatic lesion near obstruction of his right colon, indicating surgical resection. Conclusion: Liposarcomas rarely, if ever, present with metastasis to the colon. Treatment for such a presentation requires a multi-disciplinary approach involving both medical and surgical oncologists.
