The imaging features of primary ovarian leiomyoma have seldom been described because of the very low prevalence of the tumor. Herein we present a case report on its magnetic resonance imaging features. Both T1- and T2-weighted images revealed a low-signal-intensity mass, which was well circumscribed and sharply demarcated from the uterus. Magnetic resonance imaging was useful in distinguishing it from a malignant ovarian tumor and uterine leiomyoma.
