Leiomyosarcoma of inferior vena cava (IVC) is a rare soft tissue tumour. Only 0.5% of all soft tissue sarcomas of adults and only 300 cases are reported till date. We describe our encounter with such a case where we were successful in radical excision of tumour with the use of vascular staplers on the IVC without compromising IVC lumen. Leiomyosarcoma of IVC is a rare entity, and laparoscopic excision of the tumour is possible in exophytic tumour.
