Primary leiomyosarcoma of kidney is extremely rare tumour accounting for 0.12% of renal tumours. Radiological investigations are not able to differentiate between leiomyosarcoma and sarcomatoid renal cell carcinoma.

We present a rare case of primary renal leiomyosarcoma occurring in a 50 years old female.
