Leiomyoma is benign smooth-muscle tumor most commonly arising in the uterus, the gastrointestinal tract, and the skin. Leiomyomata are infrequently seen in the extremities and rarely seen in the bone. It is usually presented by a gradually increasing pain with non-specific radiological findings and could be a differential diagnosis for a wide range of bone tumors. We report a case of a 73-year-old Japanese female patient with a painful intraosseous leiomyoma involving the proximal tibia. The patient had undergone tumor excision with a wide margin, immediate weight bearing was allowed, the pain had been relieved and the patient was satisfied with no recurrence, malignant change, distant metastases or functional impairment.
