MENDEZ DELGADILLO, Litzy M.; VELAZQUEZ CASTELLANOS, Patricia Inés  and  GODOY RODRIGUEZ, Nancy. Paraurethral leiomyoma in the postmenopause report of a case. Gac Med Bol [online]. 2018, vol.41, n.1, pp.61-63. ISSN 1012-2966.

The paraurethral leiomyoma is a rare pathology, it is a mesenchymal tumor not dependent of the urethra which causes urogynecological symptoms in the patient. Its management is mainly surgical. No cases of malignancy, recurrence or metastasis are reported and its differential diagnosis must be performed with all pathologies of urethral and para-urethral masses. The present case describes the presence of this tumor in a 60-year-old post-menopausal woman who, in addition to presenting mixed urinary incontinence, referred obstructive urinary signs, was diagnosed and managed surgically: tumor resection and subsequent placement of suburethral tape.

Keywords : paraurethral leiomyoma; mixed urinary incontinence; post-menopause.
