Leiomyoma cutis is a rare benign painful skin tumour characterized by hyperplasia of smooth muscle elements found in the skin i.e. the arrector pili muscle of the hair follicles. These tumours are most commonly seen over extremities and among the subtypes, multiple piloleiomyomas are the commonest.
