A 56-year-old woman, 8 years after a total abdominal hysterectomy for leiomyosarcoma of the uterus, presented with simultaneous metastatic tumors to the bronchus and the small bowel. The former presented as atelectasis of a lung lobe and the latter as an ileoileal intussusception. Both lesions were resected and proved to be similar to the original tumor. The patient died of metastatic liver disease, 10 years after the hysterectomy and 2 years after resection of the metastases.
