MOYANO CALVO, José Luis et al. Bladder leiomyoma in a 17-year-old male patient.. Arch. Esp. Urol. [online]. 2005, vol.58, n.9, pp.954-956. ISSN 0004-0614.

OBJECTIVES: Bladder leiomyoma is a rare tumor, its frequency being estimated below 1%. METHODS: We report the case of a 17-year-old male patient presenting with hematuria and lower urinary tract irritative symptoms whose work up discovered two small bladder tumors. RESULTS: After TUR of the lesions the diagnosis of bladder leiomyoma was established; no recurrences have appeared on follow-up. CONCLUSIONS: Bladder leiomyoma is a benign tumor, therefore surgery should be the most conservative. Bibliographic review of the Spanish urologic journals shows that this is the youngest patient reported to date.
