Abstract/OtherAbstract:
OBJECTIVES: Case report of a 5 cm. male urethral leiomyoma (UL). METHOD: UL is extremely rare entity, with only seven cases in the literature. Its etiology is still unknown. Leiomyoma may be present in several locations inside the urinary tract. When located in the urethra it usually produces obstructive symptoms, but also may have asymptomatic behavior. Definitive diagnosis requires histological confirmation. Intraurethral neoplasms must be included in the differential diagnosis. RESULTS: Patient is free of lower urinary tract symptoms after complete excision of his urethral leiomyoma. CONCLUSIONS: Indication and surgical approach depend on tumor and size location. Prognostic is excellent after surgical removal.
