Leiomyomas are benign smooth-muscle tumors that most commonly arise in the uterus, the gastrointestinal tract, and the skin. They constitute 70% to 80% of all benign mesenchymal tumors, with uterine leiomyomas being the most common smooth-muscle tumor in women1. Leiomyomas are infrequently seen in the extremities2-6 and are rarely seen in bone. To the best of our knowledge, the only reported intraosseous leiomyomas occurred in the proximal aspect of the femur7, in the tibia4,8, and in the mandible9,10. We are not aware of any previous reports of intraosseous leiomyomas in the upper extremity. We describe the case of a patient with a painful intraosseous leiomyoma involving the distal aspect of the ulna. Our patient was informed that data concerning the case would be submitted for publication.
