This paper presents a patient successfully treated for leiomyosarcoma of the vena cava, with no recurrence or symptoms on an 8-year follow-up. A 56-year-old woman presented with chronic and progressive periumbilical and right upper abdominal pain. Physical examination and laboratory tests revealed no abnormalities.

We report the case of a 14-year-old female patient who presented with headache and a mass that had been growing in the left frontoparietal region for six months. We describe the findings on conventional radiography, computed tomography, and magnetic resonance imaging.
