A 57-year-old female presented with intermittent abdominal pain and bilateral pedal oedema. She was diagnosed as leiomyosarcoma from inferior vena cava (IVC). Imaging suggested encasement and occlusion of infra-renal IVC. She had received palliative chemotherapy from elsewhere, with no regression. We excised the tumour. At 14 months after the surgery, she is disease-free. Surgery is the mainstay in the treatment of retroperitoneal sarcomas. Even locally advanced retroperitoneal sarcomas may be successfully managed with complete surgical resection. Reconstruction of resected IVC segment may be avoided in selected cases.
