A case of urinary bladder leiomyoma in a patient initially diagnosed as having urethritis on account of a 2-week history of purulent urethral discharge is presented. The clinical presentation, imaging findings, and management of this rare benign tumour are discussed. The use of various imaging modalities (intravenous urography, computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging) contributed to the diagnosis of urinary bladder leiomyoma, which was confirmed histopathologically after transurethral cystoscopy was used to partially resect the lesion.
