Leiomyomas are benign tumors of smooth muscle origin with a good prognosis and found in the uterus and the gastro-intestinal tract. But, it has not been described in the lacrimal sac or auricle though they have smooth muscle. The authors present two cases of vascular leiomyoma which arose in the lacrimal sac in a 65-year-old woman and in the auricle a 67-year-old man. They were treated by simple excisions. We discused with a review of literatures. ;46 :699-701)
