Primary tumors arising in the retrovesical area are rare. We recently treated by primary excision a large retrovesical leiomyoma in a forty-five-year-old man. The smooth muscle nature of the tumor was confirmed by electron microscopy. Recognizing this entity is important, since treatment consists only of surgical removal, and the prognosis should be excellent.
