Open Access Biomedical Publisher Using Post Publication Peer Review
To study giant retroperitoneal liposarcoma
Why this paper can not include any photograph of the specimen tumor removed or any radiological window showing important preoperative findings? the paper does not mention anything about radiological features of this entity. it also does not mention the prognostic factors & treatment options for this. the case history is written very short. it also should focus the use & need of preoperative tissue diagnosis of this giant tumor.
Preoperative tissue diagnosis is important while treating such giant retroperitoneal tumors.
liposarcome although rare, should be considered and primarily managed surgically. the case doesn't add much to literatures.
No. no enough description of the case; radiologically, surgically or pathologically.
Good literatures review had to be included
No, literatures review had to be included
This is a case report on rare mesenchymal tumor, giant retroperitoneal liposarcoma (GRL).Format: There are spelling errors and often mixed with French words. i.e., abstract-second line-tissue has been spelled as “tissu”.Discussion-MRI-Magnetic imaging resonnaceed-please use English words.Consistency-Parenthesis used in introduction changed with brackets in discussion.References- There are 19 references, the space after the years are not consistent to each other(please compare references 4 and 5).Illustrations-Figure 4. Please show liposarcoma clearly by using arrows, and together with normal control for comparison.
Patient history is novel. There other case studies on GRL. Examples:1. Fernandez-Pello S, Rivas M, Rodríguez Villamil L, Fernández I, Pérez-Carral JR, Benito P, Cuervo FJ, Alemany A, Alonso RA.

Pathology results need better presentations and figure legends.
