Benign metastasizing leiomyoma is a rare clinical entity that has been described in several previous reports. Although the exact pathophysiology of the disease is unknown, two predominant theories exist: (1) metastasis from an existing leiomyoma (commonly seen with uterine leiomyoma) or (2) multicentric leiomyomatous growths rather than actual metastases. We ...
