Abstract

Leiomyoma of the vagina occurs extremely rarely and may be confused with a variety of benign vaginal tumors. A preoperative diagnosis is seldom made. The author reports a case of leiomyoma found in the anterior vaginal wall beneath the urethra and associated with pelvic pain and urinary symptoms.
