Abstract: Nowadays, elderlies health is requiring a great deal of interest. Demographic projections forecast a growing number of people over the age of 65. Therefore, this population requires increasing care and healthcare services. In our series, vulvar cancer observed in menopausal women was locally advanced in one case. Most of our patients consulted after having tried various inappropriate treatments. All cases presented epidermoidvulvular cancer. This histological type requests radical vulvectomy, which is the treatment of choice. Those who beneficiated from an appropriate surgical treatment had a five-year survival of 71.4 %. It has reached only 11 % among women who had not received the proper treatment.
