FERRERO DORIA, Roberto et al. Bladder leiomyoma: Report of one case. Arch. Esp. Urol. [online]. 2005, vol.58, n.10, pp.1072-1075. ISSN 0004-0614.

OBJECTIVES: To report a new case of bladder leiomyoma. METHODS: We describe the case of a 56-year-old female patient presenting with renal colic who was diagnosed of a bladder filling defect after work up with intravenous urography, ultrasound and urine cytology. Complete transurethral resection of the lesion was performed. RESULTS: Pathology reported bladder leiomyoma. CONCLUSIONS: Every pathological possibility should be considered in the differential diagnosis and treatment of a filling defect. Bladder leiomyoma is usually an incidental diagnosis on the pathologic report after resection of a bladder tumor.
