Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Leiomyoma of the rectum and anal canal is an unusual benign mesenchymal neoplasm that originates from smooth muscle cells. We describe the clinical presentation, MRI findings, and surgical treatment of a rare case of perianal leiomyoma confirmed by immunohistochemistry. We also report a review of the world's literature on the subject.
