Rare presentation of retroperitoneal leiomyosarcoma mimicking a myoma in a 46-year-old woman: A case report

Clin Case Rep. 2023 Jan 28;11(1):e6909. doi: 10.1002/ccr3.6909. eCollection 2023 Jan.


Retroperitoneal sarcoma is relatively uncommon. We share our experience in encountering retroperitoneal sarcoma with vascular and urethral adhesion in a 46-year-old woman. Given the rarity of these tumors, evaluation and management should ideally be performed in a center equipped with multidisciplinary expertise in treating sarcomas.

Keywords: internal iliac vein; leiomyosarcoma; retroperitoneal space; surgical resection.
