Leiomyosarcoma of the Ovary Mimicking Gastrointestinal Stromal Tumor Originating from Small Bowel: A Case Report and Literature Review

Bo Na Lee, Yung Taek Ouh, Hye Jin Choi, Sun Young Yang, Jae Kwan Lee and Jin Hwa Hong

Primary ovarian leiomyosarcoma is an extremely rare mesenchymal tumor that comprises less than 0.1% of all ovarian malignancies. Heterogeneous solid features on imaging and nonspecific bowel symptoms attributed to its close proximity to the gastrointestinal tract often cause confusion with a possible gastrointestinal tumor. We report a case of leiomyosarcoma of the ovary mimicking gastrointestinal stromal tumor from small bowel. Although rare, the possibility of primary ovarian leiomyosarcoma should be considered when the nature and location of a pelvic mass overlap with those of a gastrointestinal tract tumor.
