Leiomyomas are benign, smooth muscle tumors classically found in the uterus, esophagus, or small bowel. In very rare instances, they can be found in the breast. We report a case of leiomyoma of the breast in a 68-year-old African American female along with the lesion's histologic, immunohistochemical, and radiologic characteristics as well as a review of the literature.
