Atypical lipomatous tumor (ALT) is a low-grade malignancy that frequently occurs at a subfascial anatomical location. While marginal excision is adequate for lipomas, excision with a surgical margin is suggested for ALTs. However, ALTs and lipomas are difficult to differentiate preoperatively, even with the help of imaging studies. In this study, we aimed to formulate a scoring system based on selected clinical and imaging characteristics to enhance the accuracy of pre-operative diagnosis of deep-seated ALTs.
