The authors present the case of an angiomyoma – angioleiomyoma of the cheek in a 58-year-old man. The tumour was

palpable, although clinically not visible, and the only case of a tumour of smooth muscle treated in the Clinical Department

of Oral Surgery over the last 40 years. The operation was performed in the Outpatient Department by intraoral procedure.

The postoperative course passed without complications. Current literature on leiomyomas is cited in the Introduction,

followed by presentation of the case and histological characteristics of the tumour. The example is presented as a

rarity and one of the differential diagnostic possibilities in the diagnostics of soft tissue tumours in the oral cavity.
