INTRODUCTION Leiomyosarcomas are one of the most common soft tissue sarcomas, usually seen in deep, soft tissues of the extremities and retroperitoneum. Leiomyosarcoma primarily involving the gastrointestinal tract is uncommon. We present here a rare case of gastric leiomyosarcoma revealed by a massive hematemesis in a young woman. CASE REPORT We present(More)

Preoperative diagnosis may be difficult. Ct scan is useful for preoperative management. In this report, we describe a case of a giant malignant cystic(More)
Iatrogenic right diaphragmatic hernia is very rare. We report the first case of a patient who had a diaphragmatic hernia after laparoscopic fenestration of liver cyst. A herniorrhaphy of the diaphragmatic defect was carried out after reducing the herniated organ. The postoperative course was uneventful. Diaphragmatic hernias are not as common as the(More)

Liposarcomas are common soft tissue of the retroperitoneum and the limbs. They are rarely found in the greater omentum. Once in the peritoneum, these can become enormous and can be mistaken for ovarian mass. The authors report a case of giant omental liposarcoma revealed by an abdominal mass and genital prolapse due to the compression syndrome. A complete(More)
