Leiomyoma is a benign tumor of the uterine smooth muscle that occurs in approximately half of all women by the age of 50 years. However, these tumors occasionally occur in other parts of the body. A 27-year-old woman presented with a painless, slow-growing nodule on her right index finger that had increased in size to 1.6 cm × 1.4 cm × 1.2 cm. The initial diagnostic hypotheses included a ganglionic cyst and giant cell tumor. However, surgical excision and histological analysis revealed this tumor to be a leiomyoma of the hand.
