A pericardial myxoid liposarcoma was diagnosed in a common eland (<i>Taurotragus oryx</i>) based on gross, microscopical and immunohistochemical findings. The pericardial and epicardial tissues were soft and uniformly thickened. Microscopically, the neoplastic mass consisted of stellate cells embedded in a myxoid matrix. These cells contained cytoplasmic vacuoles stained by oil red O. Immunohistochemical analysis showed the neoplastic cells to express vimentin and S-100.
