Myosarcoma is a malignant muscle tumor.[1] People with myosarcoma often wake up with the feeling as if they had a cramp during their sleep.[2]

Leiomyosarcoma is sarcoma of smooth muscle, and rhabdomyosarcoma is sarcoma of striated muscle. However, the term myosarcoma itself still appears in the literature.[2]
