BACKGROUND: Leiomyosarcoma of inferior vena cava (IVC), a rarely encountered malignancy originating from the smooth muscle cells of media of the IVC, frequently metastasize to the liver. The suggested treatment of choice of IVC leiomyosarcoma is radical en-bloc excision aimed to obtain a negative resection margin. There are a few reported cases of surgical management in patients with liver metastasis from IVC leiomyosarcoma.
CASE REPORT: This report describes a simultaneous surgical approach for a case of IVC leiomyosarcoma with multiple liver metastases followed by chemotherapy.
CONCLUSIONS: Tumor volume reduction surgery of metastatic lesions combined with radical resection of the primary tumor may provide better survival benefit in patients with advanced IVC leiomyosarcoma.
