    Malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumors are rare tumors compromising about 5% of all malignant soft tissue tumors.

We are presenting a low grade retroperitoneal malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumor in which we used selective arterial embolization before surgery and surgical resection became possible.
