A case of a vascular leiomyoma of the upper lip has been presented. A review of the literature was completed, and the findings reported. Leiomyomas are rare intraoral neoplasms. When affecting the mouth, they are most likely to occur on the tongue, palate, buccal tissues, and lips. Conservative local excision is the recommended treatment.
