Abstract: Leoiomyoma is common in the myometrial layer of the uterus, and rarely found in other genital organs. Previous reports show multiple sites of leiomyoma outside the uterus eg. vagina, oral mucosa or mandible vascular leiomyoma. Leiomyoma is normally a benign smooth muscle tumor and behaves as a hormone sensitive tumor. Leiomyomas develop during the reproductive age and regress after menopause. The case of a 25 year old female with a large left labial leiomyoma presented as Bartholin's cyst. Illustrates the diagnostic difficulties in such cases. The management in this case was surgical excision. The definite diagnosis was confirmed by histologic examination as a labial leiomyoma.
