Abstract

Soft-tissue sarcomas of the hand are rare and the devastating effect of an undiagnosed sarcoma warrants clinical vigilance. We present the case of an unsuspected leiomyosarcoma localised in the hand in order to underline (i) the rarity of the disease in this site, (ii) the role of adequate surgical treatment in the first step, (iii) the relationship with adjuvant treatments, lymph node metastasis and the poor prognosis of this tumour.
