Leiomyoma is a solitary benign tumor of smooth muscle and vascular tissue. It can occur anywhere in the body where smooth muscle is present though it is seen for less than 1% of all soft tissue tumors of the upper extremity. It is rarely reported in the hand or in children and is usually seen in the age range of 5-84 years and usually in males.
In this report, we present the case of a 16-year-old patient presenting leiomyoma of the hand.

Keywords: Smooth muscle, Tumor, Hand, Adolescent, Tendon.
