RODRIGUEZ GOMEZ, Ignacio et al. Leimyosarcoma of the inferior vena cava: Incidental finding. Arch. Esp. Urol. [online]. 2007, vol.60, n.9, pp.1127-1131. ISSN 0004-0614.

Objective: Leiomyosarcoma of the inferior vena cava is a rare tumor, clinically silent which often remains undiagnosed for much longer. Imaging methods allow us to detect these entities. We report a single case and perform a bibliographic review. Methods: 58-year-old woman with a 6 cm adrenal mass, which during surgery was found to be a tumor from the wall of the vena cava. We performed complete removal of the mass. Radiotherapy of the surgical area was applied within three months following surgery. Results: Two years later, there is no evidence of disease recurrence. Conclusion: This is a rare entity, with low prevalence. Complete surgical excision is the gold standard for treatment. Local recurrence is a common finding during follow up.
