Due to its low incidence, liposarcoma displays a limited number of therapeutic options. However, eribulin recently received approval for the treatment of advanced liposarcoma patients, progressing to at least two chemotherapy lines. We report herein the case of a man initially diagnosed with a leyomiosarcoma, subsequently reclassified as a dedifferentiated liposarcoma, who received eribulin after he failed several therapy lines. Eribulin provided our patient an 8-month disease control and a substantial clinical benefit with no relevant adverse effects, showing a good efficacy and safety profile despite its delayed employ. Additionally, this case strengthens the pivotal importance of molecular profiling in the management of soft tissue sarcomas.

Abstract

Due to its low incidence, liposarcoma displays a limited number of therapeutic options. However, eribulin recently received approval for the treatment of advanced liposarcoma patients, progressing to at least two chemotherapy lines. We report herein the case of a man initially diagnosed with a leyomiosarcoma, subsequently reclassified as a dedifferentiated liposarcoma, who received eribulin after he failed several therapy lines. Eribulin provided our patient an 8-month disease control and a substantial clinical benefit with no relevant adverse effects, showing a good efficacy and safety profile despite its delayed employ. Additionally, this case strengthens the pivotal importance of molecular profiling in the management of soft tissue sarcomas.
