Giant symplastic leiomyoma of the gluteal region is a rarely seen situation. It is accepted as a benign illness. A 36-year- old woman presented to general surgery clinic because of a mass on her right thigh. On physical examination, there was a 7 x 6 cm mass that was mobile and bulging up from the surface of skin, 3 cm from her anus. Pathologic examination revealed symplastic leiomyoma. Leiomyomas are benign smooth muscle tumors. After excision, dermal lesions have a 40% recurrence rate. Even if mitotic activity can be shown microscopically, follow-up is important and unnecessary treatment for symplastic leiomyoma must be avoided.
