Leiomyosarcoma is a malignant smooth muscle neoplasm, which is traditionally divided into superficial and deep tumors. Superficial leiomyosarcomas are quite rare entities, accounting for approximately 7% of soft tissue neoplasms and 0.04% of all cancers. Here we describe a rare case of advanced primary cutaneous leiomyosarcoma (PCL) in a 93-year-old woman, highlighting the considerable size of the lesion and the correct surgical and oncological management. The clinical story began about 4 years ago, and the neoplasia was treated only with local radiotherapy, but the patient suffered from a dramatic volumetric increase of the right arm sarcoma one year ago. Then, an amputation of the limb was performed without following adjuvant chemotherapy. Currently, she does not show signs of recurrence and is in good shape. View Full-Text
