Paraurethral leiomyoma is rare. This is the first reported case of a woman with a 6 x 7 x 5 cm urethral leiomyoma with profuse vaginal bleeding. The site of bleeding was identified as the anterior vaginal mucosal vein, which we subsequently electrocauterized. Enucleation of the mass was performed smoothly with a Foley catheter to avoid damage to the urethra. Profuse bleeding from a paraurethral myoma is possibly due to increased vascularity and the prolapsed nature of the tumor in this area.
