Uterine leiomyosarcoma is a rare uterine malignancy, but the most common type of uterine sarcoma, in which a considerable proportion of tumors express estrogen/progesterone hormone receptors. We report a case of estrogen receptor-positive uterine leiomyosarcoma with a durable response to a combination of tamoxifen and metronomic cyclophosphamide. The current landscape and potential systemic treatment for uterine leiomyosarcoma were also briefly reviewed.
