Angiomyxoma in Vagina: A Rare Case

Nishi Gupta | Sneha Singh [3] | Aarti Soni

Abstract: Angiomyxomas (AA) are a rare type of locally infiltrative tumour with a high tendency for recurrence. We present a 35 year old woman who presented with a painless swelling in the vaginal area which was progressively increasing in size. Her gynecological examination and laboratory investigations were unremarkable. She underwent a wide local excision of the tumour. Histopathology examination of the tumour revealed an angiomyxoma. The principle treatment of angiomyxoma is the complete surgical excision with tumor-free margins. Long-term follow-up is required as this tumour has a high tendency of local recurrence. AA should be considered in the differential diagnosis of any painless swelling located in the genitofemoral region, particularly in women of reproductive age. Very few cases of angiomyxoma of the vagina have been reported so far and we describe one such case in this report.
