Abstract

In the article we describe a case of a 12-year old boy with the tumour in the small pelvis. The only one abnormality in laboratory tests was a 3-numeral ESR and a big solid tumour probably extended from the urine bowel, found on radiological examination. On surgery the tumour was found to extend from the ascendent colon. On pathological examination, it was described as angioleiomyosarcoma with metastases in the lymph nodes. The boy was treated with IX courses consisting of ifosfamide, vepeside or ifosfamide, adriamycine and vincristine. At present, the child is in the first complete remission, 7 months after completion chemotherapy.
