Abstract

Introduction:

Uterine sarcomas are rare aggressive mesenchymal tumours with limited prognosis which accounts for only 2%-8% of all uterine malignancies. The most frequent type in uterine sarcomas is leiomyosarcoma (LMS) which is seen in about 60% of cases.

Case Report:

We report 2 cases who presentated with different symptomology. After examination and imaging modalities, definitive diagnosis was made after histopathology report. Treatment in the form of neo adjuvant chemotherapy followed by Surgery and chemotherapy/radiotherapy was given. On follow up, both patients had relapse and later they died.

Conclusion:

Rate of recurrence of leiomyosarcoma is high and prognosis depends upon age, grade, tumor size and mitotic rate. Overall survival rate ranges from 15% to 25% with a median survival of only 10 months. Early detection and more trials to evaluate treatment strategies can improve survival.
