Summary: Liposarcomas are rare malignant tumors of adipose tissues with overall incidence of 0.2–0.5% among all the canine neoplasms. They may originate either from bone marrow or extra skeletal sites such as adipose tissues. Histological classification include well differentiated, pleomorphic, and myxoid subtypes. Clinical cytological, gross pathological and histopathological features of two extra skeletal canine liposarcoma cases presented to the Veterinary Teaching Hospital (VTH), University of Peradeniya are described here.
