Primary cutaneous leiomyosarcoma is a rare neoplasm; its therapeutic management appears difficult, since the high rate of local relapse and of metastasizing of the dermohypodermic forms. Radiotherapy is not indicated as exclusive therapeutic mean. Herein reported is one case of dermohypodermic primary cutaneous leiomyosarcoma of the scalp relapsing after 4 surgical excisions, and treated by orthovoltage radiotherapy, even considering the old age of the patient and his poor general health condition. A remission was obtained, that persists after 17 months from the end of treatment.
