Abstract

We present a case of a 57 year-old patient with a right ventricular metastasis of leiomyosarcoma. The patient was subjected to a tumour excision and a supplementary radiotherapy 12 years earlier. Non-characteristic symptoms and adverse medical history of coronary heart disease (three remote myocardial infarctions) delayed diagnosis and treatment. Because the disease was advanced, the patient was disqualified from surgical treatment. Good clinical condition, however, allowed for gemcitabine treatment, however, long-termed prognosis is poor.
