Leiomyoma is a neoplasm of smooth muscle relatively common in the stomach, but very rare in the duodenal location. Symptoms are gastrointestinal bleeding or abdominal pain resembling peptic disease. Three cases of duodenal leiomyomas are described, and the importance of endoscopy is emphasized as a diagnostic tool. Surgical resection of the tumor is the recommended therapeutic procedure, and the difficulty in deciding at the pathological examination whether the leiomyoma is benign or malignant demands prompt follow-up of patients after surgery.
