Primary leiomyosarcomas of the breast are extremely rare tumors, with unpredictable biological behavior. The main treatment consists of wide resection or mastectomy. Local recurrence is late; the distant metastasis spreads via the hematogenous route to lungs and liver; however, bone metastasis is rarely reported. Here, we present a case of primary leiomyosarcoma of the breast, diagnosed in the postmenopausal female. She underwent a wide resection with free margins. The patient rapidly, presented an unusual aggressive behavior of leiomyosarcoma, with a local recurrence in axillary lymph node and an exceptional distant metastasis in bones.
