A 34-year old woman with an 8-month history of nonspecific abdominal pain was diagnosed as having a leiomyosarcoma of the inferior vena cava (IVC). Complete resection of the tumour with reconstruction of the IVC was done, followed by postoperative chemo-radiotherapy. Less than 200 cases of leiomyosarcoma of IVC are reported in publications up to date. This is the first reported case of complete resection of an IVC tumour in Sri Lanka.
