Two patients with leiomyosarcomas are described, both men with lesions located in the upper trunk. Both lesions were present for more than 10 years. The diagnosis was established after excisional biopsy. The diagnostic criteria are a tumor size greater than 2.5 cm in diameter; a mitotic rate of 1 or more per 5 high-power fields in cellular areas; and electron microscopic verification of smooth muscle cells. The literature is reviewed and the clinical presentation of the 2 patients is discussed…

Recurrent Leiomyosarcoma of the Skin
While there are often morphologic clues to the smooth muscle origin of the tumor, the differential diagnosis from other dermally based spindle-cell tumors may be problematic and accurate diagnosis may require the use of multiple immunohistochemical stains in conjunction with routine histologic evaluation.
