Abstract

Metastatic leiomyosarcoma has a dismal prognosis, and therapy mainly consists of palliative systemic chemotherapy. A selected subgroup of patients with limited metastatic disease may eventually derive benefit from more aggressive strategies, including resection of isolated metastasis. We report here the successful use of hepatic transarterial chemoembolization and retroperitoneal lymph node radiofrequency ablation in a patient with advanced leiomyosarcoma metastatic to the liver and retroperitoneum.
