Abstract:The authors report a case of a 48 year-old female patient with moderate abdominal
pain and bulging in the abdomen. Physical examination demonstrated the presence of a
palpable abdominal mass. Computed tomography showed a heterogeneously enhancing
retroperitoneal mass in close contact with the inferior vena cava. En bloc resection
of the mass and of the attached vena cava segment was performed. Histological
analysis revealed leiomyosarcoma.
