Le leiomyosarcome de la veine cave inférieure: revue de la littérature à l'occasion de la découverte d'un nouveau cas

Abstract : Leiomyosarcoma of the inferior vena cava is a rare pathology. Its presentation is non-specific, depending of which part of the inferior vena cava is involved. The diagnosis is evoked after irnaging, and can be confirmed since few years thanks to trans-vascular biopsy. Here is a new case report of a 46 year old man, with antecedents of renal failure (congenital disease).In a review of literature, 137 of about 220 cases were analyzed (fiom cases reports or small series), in order to isolated predisposing and especially prognosis factors. Any predisposing factors are identified, but prognostic factors are: grade of differentiation anatomical level of the involved, number of levels involved and presence of a vasciilar thrombus.We noted that these last three factors of'ten condition the operability of the patient (for complete surgical resection); which seem to be the major prognosis factor. The treatment is radical surgery. Radiotherapy is confinned, after surgical resection. The place of chemotherapy in a curative treatment is not proving.
