Abstract

Smooth muscle neoplasms seem to be particularly frequent in children with AIDS, and several cases of such lesions, both benign and malignant (leiomyomas and leiomyosarcomas), have recently been reported in the literature. We describe here the imaging findings in a boy with AIDS who developed two leiomyomas of the gallbladder wall as well as calcification of the intraparenchymal splenic arteries.
