Uterine leiomyosarcomas carry a dismail prognosis. Diagnosis is often an unexpected pathology discovery after hysterectomy for fibroma. Prognosis depends on the degree of locoregional extension and thus on early diagnosis. Extended surgery in case of relapse is sometimes the only possible approach for symptoms control and improvement of quality of life. A case of massive involvement of the abdomen by a relapsed uterine leiomyosarcoma treated by extreme surgery is here presented.
