Abstract

Abstract The diagnosis of benign metastasizing leiomyoma BML is a casuic case. The term is used to describe a entity of neoplasms characterized by a proliferation of smooth muscle cells with low mitotic index, usually located outside female genital organs. In the world literature there are reports of benign metastasizing leiomyomas in the lungs, skull base and spine, the lymph nodes of the small pelvis and the heart. In the following study the authors analyzed a case of a 72-year-old woman in which, during hysterectomy due to uterine leiomyomas, a nodule of the small intestine was found, confirmed histologically as leiomyoma.
