Abstract

Malignant mesenchymalneoplasms of the gallbladder are extremely rare with only 105 cases of primary gallbladder sarcoma having been described. It has a very aggressive behavior and is usually diagnosed at advanced stages. Therefore, curative surgical management may not be possible. We performed a radical cholecystectomy (S4b + S5 segmentectomy), omentectomy and small bowel resection in a 54-year-old patient with locally invasive leiomyosarcoma of the gallbladder. Further studies are needed to confirm the benefit of aggressive treatment for patients with leiomyosarcoma of the gallbladder.
