Primary leiomyosarcoma of the broad ligament is a very rare, rapidly progressive and highly malignant gynaecological tumor. There are only 11 cases reported so far in the literature. An 87-year-old Caucasian lady with leiomyosarcoma of the broad ligament is presented. Treatment consisted of resection and total abdominal hysterectomy with bilateral salpingo-oopphorectomy. Unusually, she developed large recurrent pelvic disease in the absence of disseminated metastasis following surgery. She died within 8 weeks of primary surgery. This highlights the unknown behavior of this tumor and the need for more research into management.
