      Myxoid liposarcoma is an extremely rare malignant breast tumor. We report the case of a 44-year-old woman who had myxoid liposarcoma of the breast with a history of phyllodes tumor and describe the imaging findings on US, mammography, and MRI. Before surgery, the mass was considered to be a recurrent phyllodes tumor. However, using US, we retrospectively identified some differences between myxoid liposarcomas and phyllodes tumors.

      Immunotherapy has revolutionized cancer treatment, but currently, immuno-oncology agents have not been approved for patients with soft tissue sarcomas. However, there is growing evidence suggesting that immunotherapy could be an effective therapeutic strategy for this group of diseases. Here, we reviewed the latest advances of immunotherapy trials from the 2023 American Society of Clinical Oncology Annual Meeting, including some novel and encouraging combination regimens. Further research is still needed to fully understand the optimal use of these agents in sarcoma treatment.
