Leiomyomas are quite common in women of childbearing age however usually seen in uterus or cervix. Vaginal location is very rare for leiomyomas with only about 300 cases reported until date. Leiomyomas at vaginal location usually present with swelling at introitus with or without urinary symptoms. These lesions show varied imaging features and are reported to possess high malignant potential. We report a patient having both uterine and vaginal leiomyomas. The uterine leiomyoma showed magnetic resonance imaging features of a typical leiomyoma, but vaginal leiomyoma showed magnetic resonance imaging characteristics indistinguishable from Schwannoma.
