A 55-year-old Arabic and Moroccan male patient presented with a painful nodule in the left knee without a previous history or trauma. The patient underwent a wide excision of the nodule. The histological study evoked the diagnosis of a subcutaneous leiomyoma. The final diagnosis was established by the immunohistochemistry. One year after the operation no tumor recurrence has been detected. Leiomyomas are benign soft tissue tumours, which occur most commonly in the skin of the lower extremities in middle-aged females. The main differential diagnosis is the leiomyosarcoma, hence the necessity of an extensive sampling of the lesion.
