A Rare Case Study: Leiomyoma of the Sternothyroid Muscle

Leiomyomas are benign, soft-tissue tumors of smooth muscle origin that account for a very low percentage of all head and neck tumors. To the best of our knowledge, we present the first case of leiomyoma arising in the sternothyroid muscle.  We advise that physicians and pathologists include leiomyomas as a possible diagnosis for calcified soft tissue masses in the head and neck.
