Primary ovarian leiomyomas are rare tumors accounting for 0.5%–1% of all ovarian tumors. They are seen commonly in the reproductive age group. Morphologically, they resemble leiomyomas occurring at other sites. The definitive preoperative diagnosis is difficult due to the lack of characteristic radiological features. Here, we describe a case of ovarian leiomyoma, which has posed a diagnostic and therapeutic challenge. The final diagnosis was confirmed by immunohistochemistry.
