Primary hepatic leiomyosarcoma is a very rare tumour only eighteen cases having been reported in the literature. A new case of this tumour is reported here, in which a complete diagnostic imaging work-up was performed, leading to the pathologic diagnosis, obtained with ultrasonically-guided coarse needle biopsy. Transarterial chemoembolisation, a new therapeutic option for this disease, was attempted without success.
