Leiomyosarcoma of prostate is rare accounting for 0.1% of prostatic malignancies. It has a very poor prognosis although rate of survival is variable. Treatment recommendations are difficult to establish due to the rarity of the tumour. Here we report a case of primary prostatic leiomyosarcoma in an adult treated by primary excision of mass followed by doxorubicin based chemotherapy. Patient subsequently developed local recurrence and disseminated secondaries and was then lost to follow up.
