Abstract

Leiomyomas arising outside of the uterus and gastrointestinal tract are uncommon, though these benign soft tissue neoplasms have been reported in the lower extremity and foot. To our knowledge, the sonographic appearance of a lower extremity leiomyoma has not been described in the literature. This report involves a case of leiomyoma of the foot and its sonographic imaging features. MR correlative imaging and histopathology are also provided.
