Abstract

The authors present a 55-year-old patient with leiomyosarcoma uteri who died six months after surgical and subsequent radiation therapy. They point out difficulties in diagnosing the disease owing to a very scarce symptomatology. The fast growth of the myoma is considered very symptomatic of a malign alteration. In the patient presented, in only eight months, a slightly myomatously increased uterus gew to the size of two male fists.
