Zusammenfassung

Leiomyosarkome der V. cava inferior sind selten und die klinischen Symptome unspezifisch. Wir berichten über eine 82-jährige Patientin mit einem Leiomyosarkom der infrarenalen V. cava, die sich wegen Gewichtsverlustes und abdomineller Schmerzen in unserer Klinik vorstellte. Nach ausführlicher präoperativer Diagnostik wurde der Tumor radikal reseziert und die V. cava inferior rekonstruiert. Klinische Manifestationen, diagnostische Maßnahmen, therapeutische Optionen und die Prognose des Krankheitsbildes werden diskutiert.
