Abstract
Primary peritoneal leiomyoma is histologically benign and rare non-neoplastic proliferation of smooth muscle that occurs in the peritoneal wall during the reprodutive years of women. A 51-year old patient had a solid tumor of 18cm diameter in the peritoneal wall, which was pathologically confirmed as a benign leiomyoma primarily originated from the retroperitoneal wall. Laparotomy revealed a solid tumor in the peritoneal wall, about 18cm, and histologically diagnosed as a leiomyoma. We report a case of primary peritoneal leiomyoma with a brief review of literatures.
Key Words: Primary peritoneal leiomyoma
