Leiomyosarcoma of the inferior vena cava: an unusual tumor. Case report and review of literature.

Abstract

A case of leiomyosarcoma of the inferior vena cava (IVC) is reported. Only 48 cases have been previously reported in the world literature. Pre-operative management is discussed with reference to diagnostic consideration. The case strengthens the concept of operative intervention in asymptomatic abdominal masses with minimal pre-operative workup and delay.
