Primary ovarian leiomyosarcomas is a rare neoplasm which comprises less than 3% of ovarian tumors. Their origin, etiology, histologic features, clinical behavior, and optimal treatment are still obscure. We report a case of leiomyosarcoma of ovary, diagnosed on histopathology in a 60 year old female and discuss the literature.
