Abstract: This report describes a case of primary leiomyoma of the ureter in which only partial ureterectomy was performed based on the diagnosis of benign tumor by rapid diagnosis using a frozen section during the operation. Surgical treatment was opted for upon diagnosis of a submucosal tumor of the right ureter, with no abnormal findings in the ureteral mucosa by ureteroscopy. To our knowledge, nine cases have been reported worldwide since 1955, suggesting this case to be the 10th.
