Leiomyosarcoma of the broad ligament is a rare tumor and according to our knowledge only twenty cases have been reported in the English literature. Gardner et al. emphasize that, “these tumors occur on or in the broad ligament, but are completely separated from and in no way connected with either the uterus or the ovary” [1]. On the other hand metastasis of leiomyosarcoma to the abdominal wall is very rare and there is no any report of leiomyosarcoma of broad ligament with more than 33 months fallow up and metastasis to the abdominal wall [2]. In this paper an Iranian 60 year old lady with metastatic leiomyosarcoma of abdominal wall five years following to than resection of lieomyosarcoma of the broad ligament is presented. It seems that the tumor’s grade has worsened by time.metastatic tumor became worst with timing
