A case of leiomyosarcoma of the liver in a 65-year-old man was reported.
Laboratory examinations showed mild liver dysfunction (TTT5.6, ICG R15 15%), but tumor markers including AFP were within normal limits except for slightly elevated CEA (6.8 ng/ml).
Ultrasonography (US) demonstrated a smooth and round hypoechoic lesion with irregular echogenic spots in medial segment of left hepatic lobe, which was about 3.9×3.0 cm in diameter.
CT scan showed a round low density area and scintigraphy showed a cold nodule. Angiography disclosed slightly irregular tumor vessels, but not tumor stain nor hypervasculanty.
Hepatoma of left hepatic lobe was suspected preoperatively. The resected tumor was measured 4.0×3.7×3.5 cm in diameter and contained necrotic areas. Histologically it was a typical leiomyosarcoma with many mitotic figures.
