Leiomyoma Of Urinary Bladder
Leiomyoma of the bladder accounts for 0.43% of all bladder tumors. Although bladder leiomyomas are rare, they are the most common benign, soft tissue neoplasm of the bladder. Most bladder tumors originate from the epithelium; however, leiomyoma of the bladder has a mesenchymal origin. Bladder leiomyomas can be asymptomatic and are frequently found incidentally by pelvic ultrasonography. The symptoms have been considered to depend on the tumor location and size. Only about 250 cases of bladder leiomyoma have been reported in English published studies to date. Most previous reports presented the experience of 1 or 2 cases at a single center, with 2 reports including 3 cases of bladder leiomyoma.
Key words: Bladder tumor, leiomyoma , mesenchymal
