    Leiomyoma is a rare benign tumor of smooth muscle. In the word leiomyomas, “Leio” means “smooth”, “myo” means ‘muscle’, and “oma” means ‘tumor’. It may arise from smooth muscles of the skin, uterus, bladder, urethra. Depending upon the origin of skin smooth muscles cutaneous leiomyomas are of three main types: 1. Piloleiomyoma or leiomyoma cutis or pilar leiomyoma derived from arrector pili muscle; 2. Genital leiomyoma or dartoic myoma is derived from smooth muscle of the scrotum, vulva, and areola of the nipple, and 3. Angioleiomyoma is derived from the media of blood vessels. We report one such rare case of multiple piloleiomyomas.
