A 30-year-old woman was submitted to abdominal ultrasonography and magnetic resonance imaging for abdominal pain, dysuria and previous metrorrhagic episodes. Radio-logical studies revealed a large well defined bladder tumour without lymph nodal involvement. Open surgery and histological examination confirmed a 11.0×7.0×4.0 bladder leiomyoma: a rare benign mesenchymal tumor. Tumor growth, size and localization influence symptoms and surgical treatment.
