Reed's syndrome or familial myomatosis cutis et uteri, an autosomal dominant inherited condition with incomplete penetrance, is characterized by multiple cutaneous and uterine leiomyomas. [1] Uterine leiomyomas usually commence earlier compared to that in the general population and cutaneous leiomyomas may precede, follow or occur concurrently. Few patients may have associated renal cell carcinoma. Herein we report a case of a 50-year-old female with multiple, painful cutaneous leiomyomas and who had undergone hysterectomy owing to large uterine fibroids. Her 18-year-old daughter also has uterine fibroids.
