Bladder leiomyoma: A case report and brief review of literature
Leiomyomas are non-epithelial benign and rare lesions of bladder. Their symptoms vary considerably based on the size, localization and nature of the lesion. Recently, an optimal treatment option for bladder leiomyoma is still contradictive. Transurethral resection, segmental surgical excision or partial cystectomy are main treatment modalities. This study presents a 41 year-old male case who applied to our center with hematuria complaint and had leiomyoma diagnosis based on tissue sampling following transurethral resection.
