Primary tumors of the diaphragm are rare. More frequently the diaphragm is involved by hyperplastic lesions originating from the parietal pleura or abdominal organs, e.g. the liver. The authors present a case of leiomyoma diaphragmae detected accidentally on ultrasonography of the abdominal cavity. A diagnostic algorithm which may be applicable in case of suspected tumor of the diaphragm is proposed.
