Benign bladder tumors represent a rare entity of bladder neoplasms and include tumors such as leiomyomas. Female preponderance is characteristic, and patients usually present with bladder outlet obstruction, dysuria, hematuria, and urinary tract infections; symptoms that are not disease specific and can be overlooked. Bladder leiomyomas can be easily diagnosed during imaging tests or/and cystoscopy evaluation and they are mainly treated with transurethral surgical excision. We present a case of a female patient with urinary obstruction due to missed on previous ultrasound examinations large leiomyoma located at the bladder neck and expanded into the proximal urethra.
