Ovarian leiomyosarcoma is a very rare tumour representing less than 1% of all ovarian tumours. Primary sarcoma of ovary is about 3% of all ovarian tumours. Fibrosarcoma, chondrosarcoma, angiosarcoma, rhabdomyosarcoma and leiomyosarcoma have been reported. They have an aggressive behaviour and poor prognosis. Till date less than 100 cases have been reported. Because of their rarity, there is no case series to establish definitive treatment guidelines. Even the type of adjuvant therapy which could be beneficial has not yet been established. We present a case of ovarian leiomyosarcoma in which patient underwent total abdominal hysterectomy with bilateral salphingo-ophorectomy, pelvic lymphadenectomy and omental biopsy. Microscopy and Immunohistochemistry (IHC) established the diagnosis.
