Leiomyoma of the female urethra is exceedingly rare entity. Twenty-four year woman admitted to the hospital with a painless, gross hematuria and protruded mass outside the vaginal introitus. Vaginal examination revealed a mass arising from anterior urethral wall extending from meatus up to 1 cm proximally. Histopathological studies confirmed urethral leiomyoma.
