Radical surgery failed to remove a leiomyosarcoma of the vulva completely, and residual tumour was left. Chemotherapy did not inhibit further local growth or the occurrence of secondary lesions in the lung. Irradiation therapy of the pelvis, including the area of the tumour, then successfully inhibited any further local growth, as evidenced by a marked decrease in size and eventual disappearance of the mass; however, the patient succumbed to distant metastasis.
