We present an extremely rare case of angioleiomyoma located in the pectoralis major muscle. A 42-year-old woman noticed a round subcutaneous nodule 40 mm in a diameter on the left side of her chest. Computed tomography showed the tumor in the pectoralis major muscle, round shaped with a clear margin. Biopsy examination revealed angioleiomyoma. Operation was carried out. The tumor was found in the pectoralis major muscle. Neither adhesion to the surrounding muscle tissue nor vessels entering the tumor were found. The tumor was easily resected. Two-year follow-up examination revealed no recurrence of the tumor and no deformational change of the left mamma. Angioleiomyoma in a skeletal muscle is extremely rare, and our case is the fourth case reported in the English literature.
