Abstract

Prostate sarcoma, particularly the pathological type of leiomyosarcoma, is a rare carcinoma, which originated from the interstitial tissue of the prostate. This sarcoma type has a poor prognosis. This disease accounts for ~0.1% of all prostate cancer and it usually occurrs in patients aged between 40 and 78-years-old. Although prostate leiomyosarcoma has a poor prognosis, early treatment of post‑operative recurrence and metastases via a whole‑body examination and closer follow-up was possible. These measurements may significantly prolong the survival time and improve the quality of life. The present study reported a successful case of surgical management for prostate leiomyosarcoma in the Zigong No. 4 People's Hospital (Sichuan, China) during 1995 until 2015, with post‑operative follow-up for 20 years.
