Leiomyosarcomas of vascular origin are very rare tumors, predominantly affecting the inferior vena cava (IVC). Although vascular leiomyosarcomas are slow-growing, their non-specific and late presentation results in delayed diagnosis which portends a very poor prognosis. Here we report a case of a 24-year-old man who presented with abdominal pain since 15 days and was found to have unresectable metastatic leiomyosarcoma of the inferior vena cava at initial diagnosis.
