Kalp ve Damar Cerrahisi Kliniği, Bursa Yüksek İhtisas Eğitim ve Araştırma Hastanesi, Bursa Leiomyosarcomas rarely arise from primary veins, especially the great saphenous vein. The present report is about a 67 years old female patient who was having a mass medially above her knee, having mild pain and tenderness while walking, for nearly 4 months. The mass was diagnosed as trombosed varicose vein at an outher center and was referred for the operation. After further in- vestigations done at our instution patient was operated successfully. The pathological examination revealed leiomyosarcoma of the great saphenous vein with free margins. The patient did not have any evidence of distal metastasis at the preoperative period and also revealed no evidence of any re- currence during the 24 months of follow up period.
