Leiomyomas are benign mesenchymal tumors commonly presenting as uterine masses. They are most frequently seen in females during the reproductive age. Extrauterine leiomyomas are rarely seen and primarily observed in the genitourinary tract. In general, patients come up with soft-tissue mass near the urethral meatus and urinary symptoms. We report a case of distal urethral leiomyoma in a 34-year-old woman who presented with periurethral mass with a history of hematuria and dysuria. She underwent complete excision of the mass. Due to their unusual location, these leiomyomas should be treated with great care during surgery. Postsurgery, the patient remained asymptomatic, and there was no evidence of recurrence in the follow-up.
