Intravenous leiomyomatosis (IVL) with intracaval mass, cardiac extension, and pulmonary metastasis is rare and it is characterized by nodular masses of smooth muscle proliferation that may extend to variable distances. We experienced a case of the intravenous leiomyomatosis originating from the uterus and extending to the ovarian veins, the iliac veins, the inferior vena cava, the right atrium and the lung. And it was diagnosed from the various preoperative studies and operated successfully through the single-stage approach. So we report it with a brief review of the literature.
Key Words: Intravenous leiomyomatosis (IVL), Uterine leiomyoma
