Abstract

Maxillary leiomyosarcoma is an uncommon tumor, and the occurrence of its metastasis to the spine is exceedingly rare. We report the case of a patient with maxillary leiomyosarcoma who developed a spinal metastasis 18 months following a total maxillectomy. Our patient represents only the third case of metastasis to the spine that has been reported in the literature, and the only reported case of metastasis to the iliac bone.
