Abstract

We present the case of a 76-year-old man with a 2-month history of mildly tender swelling in the right calf for which he had an initial excision and then a wide local excision followed by a split skin graft because the initial histopathology confirmed that there was a Grade I leiomyosarcoma of great saphenous vein. A simple lump in the lower limb could be a malignant vascular tumour and should always be considered in the list of differential diagnosis of a lump in the lower limb.
