Rare Case of Vaginal Leiomyoma – A Case

Sai Anirudh Athaluri, Ganni Anantha Lakshmi Satyavati, and Akshitha J


Vaginal leiomyomas are rare solid tumors which occur in middle aged females aged across 35 to 50 years of age. The mullerian smooth muscle cells in the sub epithelium of vagina are considered the source of the tumor. Vaginal leiomyoma most commonly arises from the anterior vaginal wall. Herein, we report the case of 53-year-old south Indian woman presenting with multiple vaginal masses with complaint of excessive bleeding per vagina. Upon examination she was found to have a mass arising from the upper one-third of the anterior vaginal wall. Ultrasonography and magnetic resonance images (MRI) revealed multiple vaginal leiomyomas. Laparoscopic hysterectomy and excision of vaginal fibroid was performed to remove the vaginal fibroids and subsequent histopathology examination confirmed a vaginal leiomyoma.
