Leiomyomas are benign tumours of smooth muscle origin and are the most common uterine masses in females of reproductive age group. Extrauterine leiomyomas are also encountered occassionally and most commonly they involve the genitourinary tract. Leiomyomas arising from urethral smooth muscle are exceptionally unusual which can pose a diagnostic dilemma. Patients usually present with urinary complaints and an intraluminal soft tissue mass bulging from urethral meatus. We are presenting the imaging findings of leiomyoma of distal urethra presenting as a perineal mass with histopathological correlation.
