The incidence of extraskeletal osteosarcomas located in the soft tissues without attachment to the bone or periosteum in only 1 percent. The most common location of these tumors is the lower extremity (42-47 percent); especially the thigh followed by the upper extremity (12-1 percent) and the retroperitoneum (8-17 percent). Hence, we report an extremely rare case of extraskeletal retroperitoneal osteosarcoma.
