Familial leiomyomatosis cutis et uteri may present with numerous cutaneous leiomyomas, or piloleiomyomas, which can be painful. Pharmacologic agents have had limited efficacy in mitigating leiomyoma-associated discomfort. We describe a case of familial piloleiomyomas in which intermittent pain at the site of the lesions was substantially reduced by the administration of oral gabapentin. The unusual unilateral distribution of leiomyomas in this case is discussed.
