Dedifferentiated liposarcoma (DDLPS) is a rare type of neoplasm which can originally rise in cardiac chamber. Owing to the recurrence and distant metastasis, the prognosis of the primary malignant cardiac tumor is extremely poor and remains a challenge for cardiac surgeons. Here, we report a patient with an intracavitary mass which was diagnosed as DDLPS by postoperative pathological examinations, experienced repeated in-situ recurrence of the malignant cardiac tumor. © 2019 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
