We report the case of a 77-year-old Caucasian man with a leiomyosarcoma of the femoral vein. A leg preservation surgery was decided. Eight months later, the patient died of tumor progression. A PubMed search using the terms “leiomyosarcoma femoral vein” and “leiomyosarcoma vein” was performed.

Median age was 55 years, seven men and six women, tumor resection was performed by six authors, six others performed a vascular resection, and one preferred for a thigh excision. Prognosis remains poor if metastasis is present, and in these cases, a conservative surgery is recommended to preserve patients’ quality of life......
