Abstract

INTRODUCTION:

Leiomyoma of the urinary bladder is a rare, benign tumor of mesenchymal origin. Treatment options are discussed. Besides open surgery and transurethral resection of small, submucosal tumors, laparoscopic excision is an effective therapeutical option with a low complication rate.

CASE REPORT:

We report the medical history of a 36-year-old woman suffering from a leiomyoma of the urinary bladder and the therapy through laparoscopic excision.

CONCLUSIONS:

Laparoscopic removal of urinary bladder leiomyomas is a suitable alternative to common therapeutical procedures.
