Hepatic metastases from primary extremity leiomyosarcomas: Two case reports.

Abstract Leiomyosarcoma is a highly malignant soft tissue sarcoma. Most leiomyosarcomas of the extremities metastasize initially to the lungs, with few metastasizing to the liver. Also, it is difficult to diagnose metastases to other regions of the lung during follow-up.

AB  - INTRODUCTION: Leiomyosarcoma is a highly malignant soft tissue sarcoma. Most
      leiomyosarcomas of the extremities metastasize initially to the lungs, with few
      metastasizing to the liver. Also, it is difficult to diagnose metastases to other
      regions of the lung during follow-up. CASE PRESENTATION: The first patient was a 
      51-year-old Japanese woman diagnosed with a leiomyosarcoma of the left distal
      femur. She underwent chemotherapy, followed by wide tumor excision and
      reconstruction using frozen autograft with total knee arthroplasty. Eleven months
      later, a focal lesion was observed in her right liver, despite the absence of
      lung metastases. Partial hepatic resection was performed, and the hepatic lesion 
      was diagnosed a metastasis of leiomyosarcoma. Two years later, there has been no 
      evidence of local recurrence. The second patient was a 60-year-old Japanese male 
      diagnosed with a leiomyosarcoma of the left thigh. He underwent preoperative
      chemotherapy followed by wide excision. Three years later, a focal lesion was
      found in his medial liver, despite the absence of lung metastases. Partial
      hepatic resection was performed, and the hepatic lesion was diagnosed as a
      metastasis of leiomyosarcoma. At the latest follow-up, there has been no evidence
      of local recurrence. CONCLUSIONS: The lung is the most common site of metastases 
      from leiomyosarcomas of the extremeties, because these metastases are
      hematogenous. Both our patients presented with metastases of the liver, despite
      the absence of lung metastases. Hepatic metastasis is commonly found in computed 
      tomography (CT) scan. Periodic CT scans of the chest and abdomen are necessary in
      following-up patients who undergo resection of primary leiomyosarcomas of the
      extremities.
