Primary leiomyosarcomas arising in the adrenal gland are exceedingly rare, with only 10 cases reported in English literature, always appear as large abdominal masses, and are associated with poor prognoses when other organs have been invaded. We report a clinic case of adrenal well-differentiated leiomyosarcoma in a 55-year-old white man including a review of literature.
