Leiomyoma of the urinary bladder is a very rare entity and represents <0.5% of all bladder tumours, with only 250 cases reported worldwide to date. We report a case of leiomyoma of the bladder 55 -year-old female presented with chief complaints lower abdomen pain since 1 year associated with intermittency, burning, frequency and hesitancy in micturation. Bimanual examination of the patient revealed a mass on the right side near the bladder neck. USG suggested a well circumscribed polypoidal soft tissue lesion seen projecting in urinary bladder lumen and attached to the posterior wall and base of bladder with no internal vascularity. On cystoscopic examination, large smooth sessile growth arising from the right postero-lateral wall was noted with right ureteric orifice not visualized. Magnetic resonance imaging showed Large well defined rounded soft tisssue lesion close to anterior surface of the cervix and vagina which was Isointense to the skeletal muscles on T1 and T2 images with small focal irregular cystic areas of necrosis seen. It could be urinary bladder neoplasm or sub serosal cervical fibroid. Transurethral resection of tumor was performed. The pathologic diagnosis was leiomyoma of the bladder. We discuss the diagnosis and management of leiomyoma of the bladder and briefly review the literature.
