Leiomyosarcoma of the inferior vena cava is a rare primary tumour. We present a case report of a 67-year-old man with a long history of abdominal pain and gastroesophageal reflux, who was found to have a large retroperitoneal mass confirmed to be a leiomyosarcoma. The clinical and imaging features are outlined, and in addition the treatment and prognosis.
