Primary sarcomas are very rare aggressive tumours of the kidney. We report a case of a 57 year old lady presenting with right loin pain and anorexia for 3 months. On examination she had a nontender mass which on radiological evaluation proved to be a large heterogeneous renal mass with central necrosis. Right radical nephrectomy was done. Histological examination revealed a neoplasm with cells arranged in fascicles and sheets and a herring bone pattern. Immunohistochemistry confirmed a diagnosis of primary leiomyosarcoma kidney. The patient is being followed up; the case is being reported for its rarity.
