Abstract: A 41-year-old Japanese woman who presented with right lower abdominal pain underwent partial omental resection with tumor excision, leaving no residual tumor. The tumor was diagnosed as a myxoid leiomyosarcoma that apparently originated in the greater omentum. A recurrent omental tumor was excised at 4.5 months after the first operation, and then at 5.5 months after this, CT revealed metastatic sarcoma at the surface of the liver (S7) and the left upper abdomen. She died 20 months after the last operation despite treatment of the metastases with MAID therapy (mesna, adriamycin, ifosfamide, dacarbazine). A literature review revealed that this tumor mainly occurs in the uterus, soft tissue, and cardiovascular system, with a preponderance among middle-aged to elderly women. The present report is the first description of primary omental myxoid leiomyosarcoma.
