CANOVAS IVORRA, José Antonio et al. Baldder leiomyoma: Report of two new cases and bibliographic review. Arch. Esp. Urol. [online]. 2007, vol.60, n.6, pp.684-687. ISSN 0004-0614.

Objective: Primary mesothelial tumors of the bladder are rare entities, being leiomyoma the most frequent of them. It may grow without any clinical symptoms or with very unspecific ones. Methods: We report two cases of bladder leiomyoma in 2 patients, and performed a bibliographic review. Results: They were treated by transurethral resection, with an excellent outcome, without incidences over five years of follow-up. Conclusions: Surgical treatment continues to be the best solution; it is easy to perform and has a very limited number of complications. Prognosis is good in any case and progression is anecdotic.

Keywords : Bladder leiomyoma; Urinary bladder; Transurethral resection.
