Diaphragmatic tumors are rare pathology. Little over 200 cases are reported in literature with histological variance being very diverse. The incidence of malignant and benign diaphragmatic tumors is relatively similar, with most common being cysts and lipomas in benign group versus sarcomas in malignant group. Due to tumor anatomical localization many patients do not have any specific symptoms until tumor size increases. Right diaphragm tumors can mimic liver lesions – solid as well as cystic. Surgical resection is the only curative option. This case report aims to provide clinical experience and diagnostic challenges of one of the rarest benign diaphragmatic tumors – leiomyoma.
