An unusual case of a bladder leiomyosarcoma after cyclophosphamide (CPM) chemotherapy for breast cancer is reported. A 50-year-old female presented with urinary frequency and urgency was found by computed tomography and ultrasound to have a mass in her urinary bladder. Cystoscopy displayed a mass on her left bladder wall and biop-sies of the mass revealed chronic inflammation of the uroepithelium. The patient underwent exploratory laparotomy, and an intra-operative frozen section examination revealed a malignant spindle cell tumor. Partial cystectomy was per-formed and the final pathologic examination confirmed low potential malignancy leiomyosarcoma. The present report is significant not only because leiomyosarcoma as a second tumor after CPM therapy for breast cancer is very rare, but also because the total dose of CPM was only 9.6 g and the interval from initial CPM treatment was only 8 months. A review of the literature shows the necessity for extensive follow-up after CPM therapy.
