Abstract
Purpose:The aim of this study was to evaluate the clinicopathological characteristics of uterineleiomyosarcoma (LMS) and possible prognostic factors.



Materials and Methods:This study included 31 patients with histologically proven LMS at Samsung Medical Centerand Ajou University Hospital between 1994 and 2007. The medical records and availablehistological slides were reviewed retrospectively.



Results:The median age was 46 years (range, 32∼63). The most common symptom was vaginalbleeding (11 patients, 35.5%). There were 23 patients with stage I, one patient with stage III,seven patients with stage IV disease. The median follow up time was 29 months (range, 1∼94). The most common recurrence site was lung (5 case), followed by pelvis and upperabdomen (2 case). Nine patients died of disease with a 5-year overall survival rate of 63%.Early tumor stage and mitotic count were the prognostic factor in univariate analysis(p10HPF)had a trend for disease recurrence in early stage LMS (p=0.0859).



Conclusion:Mitotic count less than 15/HPF in early stage may be related with longer progression-freeinterval, but we could not reach the conclusion that adjuvant therapy in early stage LMS beeffective.
