Leiomyosarcomas (LMSs) account for <0.1% of all bladder malignancies. Due to the infrequent occurrence of these tumors, established guidelines for management are lacking. Conventionally, radical extirpative surgery has been advocated. We present our experience with organ preservation in a young male presenting with LMS bladder. A brief review of literature supporting organ preservation in selected cases has also been presented.
