Leiomyosarcoma and epidermodysplasia verruciformis are rarely encountered in children. The association of either leiomyosarcoma or epidermodysplasia verruciformis with immune deficiency has previously been documented. A 6-year-old girl, who has had multifocal leiomyosarcomatosis after the previous diagnoses of epidermodysplasia verruciformis and immune defect, represents an interesting association of these features.
