Leiomyoma is the most common uterine tumour. In MRI examination leiomyoma normally appeared to be hypointense relative to the surrounding myometrium on T2 weighted images and isointense on T1 weighted images. Leiomyoma is the most common uterine tumor that occurs in more than 20% of women older than 30 years. This tumor presents different types of degenerations and a large variability in MRI imaging patterns. In literature there is no case reported about leiomyomas spectroscopy. Physical examination revealed abdominal distension and abnormal uterine bleeding. Using abdominal MRI 3 Tesla we were able to determine the presence of a mass near uterine body very close to left ovarian. Laparotomy was performed and it showed a uterine peduncolated lesion. Histological examination proved smooth muscle cells and spindle-shaped cells separated by myxoid materials and ordinary myoma cells.
