Abstract

Primary vascular leiomyosarcoma is a rare tumor that arises mainly from the inferior vena cava (IVC). It is usually a slow-growing progressive tumor. It shows mainly three type of growth patterns; 62% of cases demonstrate extraluminal pattern, 5% cases show intraluminal pattern, and 33% extra- and intraluminal growth patterns.
