Abstract
The primary leiomyosarcoma of the vagina is very rare tumor in the female lower genital tract. A case of primary leiomyosarcoma of the vagina in the 44 years old woman was presented with lower abdominal pain and cystic and solid mass in the vagina. The mass was mainly comprised with spindle shaped cells showing moderate degree of cellular atypia and mitosis up to 8/10HPF. The mainstay of treatment is surgical excision of the primary mass. Treatment with chemotherapy or radiation therapy usually reserved for inoperable or recurrent cases. We present this case with a review of literature.
Key Words: primary leiomyosarcoma of the vagina, soft tissue sarcoma
