Abstract

The leiomyomas are a common gynecologic entity that may present unusual growth patterns or unusual locations. Its atypical presentations creates a diagnostic challenge. This is a case report of a parasitic leiomyoma located in the anterior abdominal wall in a 53 years old woman with pelvic compressive and urinary symptoms, with no history of any gynecological surgery. This case illustrates the diagnostic difficulties and describes the complementary images used in the preoperative evaluation.
