ABSTRACT
Introduction: Leiomyoma is a benign tumor of smooth muscles that can arise almost anywhere in the body, where smooth muscle is present. Leiomyoma of the scrotum is a rare entity described as a benign pathology arising from subcutaneous tissue or dartos muscle.
Case history: Here, we report a case of solitary scrotal leiomyoma presenting with lump on medial aspect of left side of scrotum since 6 moths. This case has been reported for its rarity as presented with very short history till the date in literature.
Conclusion: Leiomyoma of the scrotum is a rare benign mesenchymal neoplasm. This case points to importance of the clinicopathological characteristics of the scrotal smooth muscle tumors in elderly patient, with skin ulceration & in shorter duration to prevent erroneous diagnosis & treatment.
