Abstract

The most common malignant tumors in the colon are adenocarcinomas, while leiomyosarcoma (LMS) are rare. Here, we report a case of LMS of the sigmoid colon in a 73-year-old man who presented with sigmoido-rectal intussusception, which was discovered by abdominal computed tomography. As LMS of the colon is uncommon and is rarely associated with intussusception, we have described the imaging features in this case report.
