INTRODUCTION: Leiomyoma of kidney is an exceptional finding in the urinary tract. Though most of these tumors are detected on autopsy, still it remains a diagnostic challenge.
PRESENTATION OF CASE: We report three adult cases of renal leiomyoma in our institute who presented with abdominal mass and haematuria in last 8 years.
DISCUSSION: Leiomyoma has been reported in other organs but renal leiomyoma is rare tumour, though in autopsy series they are second in order of frequency among the renal mesenchymal neoplasms, and few cases have been described in the literature. Still no Indian experience is evaluated on this rare site of occurrence.
CONCLUSION: Considering the difficulty of clinical diagnosis of this tumour, strong suspicion is indicated when a patient presents with voluminous, well circumscribed renal lesions.
