Leiomyoma is the most common benign tumor of uterus and rarely it may be seen in other parts female reproductive system like the round ligament, utero-sacral ligament, inguinal canal and vagina. There are only few cases reported in literature about vaginal origin fibroid1. These vaginal tumors arise most commonly from the anterior vaginal wall causing varied clinical presentations. We report a case of vaginal lateral wall fibroid of 8 cm size and extending into ischiorectal space. The vaginal mass was surgically excised and histopathology confirmed the diagnosis of leiomyoma.
