Abstract

Primary ovarian leiomyosarcoma is an extremely rare mesenchymal tumor that comprises less than 0.1% of all ovarian malignancies. Heterogeneous solid features on imaging and nonspecific bowel symptoms attributed to its close proximity to the gastrointestinal tract often cause confusion with a possible gastrointestinal tumor. We report a case of leiomyosarcoma of the ovary mimicking gastrointestinal stromal tumor from small bowel. Although rare, the possibility of primary ovarian leiomyosarcoma should be considered when the nature and location of a pelvic mass overlap with those of a gastrointestinal tract tumor.
