Leiomyosarcomas of the ovarian vein are extremely rare tumours. Most tumours are hypervascular and typically have a large avascular centre of necrosis. We experienced a case of a retroperitoneal leiomyosarcoma that arose from the ovarian vein with marked vascular proliferation and dilatation within the tumour. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first case report of a retroperitoneal leiomyosarcoma with an atypical vascular structure in the clinical literature.
