This is a review of the literature and a case report of a 14-year-old female who presented with increasing, intermittent back pain and abdominal distention due to a large uterine leiomyoma treated by myomectomy. This is the 9th reported case of a uterine leiomyoma in an adolescent female under the age of 18 years in the English literature.
