CASE: We present a case of a symptomatic uterine leiomyoma presenting with recurrent urinary retention that was conservatively managed with a gonadotropin-releasing hormone agonist. As far as we know, this is the first reported case of a successful treatment by gonadotropin-releasing hormone agonist. We also compare other approaches to treatment of urinary retention secondary to uterine leiomyoma found in literature.
CONCLUSION: Gonadotropin-releasing hormone agonists can be offered to the patient as a potential, successful nonsurgical option in select cases.
