Inflammatory well-differentiated liposarcoma is a rare soft-tissue tumor which is predominantly retroperitoneal in origin. We report a 72-year-old male without co-morbidities with suspected urosepsis and an obstructing ureteric calculus. Despite adequate diversion and broad-spectrum antimicrobials, the leukocytosis persisted. Further imaging revealed a locally infiltrating prepubic mass which was suspicious of a lymphoid malignancy and was found to be a high-grade liposarcoma on biopsy. He underwent open wide local resection of the tumor and the histopathology revealed an inflammatory well-differentiated liposarcoma with areas of neutrophilic abscess and necrosis. A dramatic response to the surgical resection was seen and the leukocytosis resolved within a few days.
