Leiomyosarcoma of vascular origin is a rare disease and most cases arise in the inferior vena cava. Inferior vena cava leiomyosarcoma (IVCLMS) usually presents in females in their sixth decade of life. The clinical symptoms are often non-specific and the diagnosis is often delayed. Current imaging techniques can accurately differentiate inferior vena cava neoplasms from other non-neoplastic lesions. However, definitive diagnosis of IVCLMS needs histologic evidence. We report a case of IVCLMS in a 61-year old Chinese woman. This is the first IVCLMS case confirmed by catheter suction biopsy during digital subtraction angiography.
