A giant aggressive angiomyxoma of vulva
Aggressive angiomyxoma (AAM) is a rare and benign invasive mesenchymal stromal tumor predominantly in women at reproductive age. AAM tends to relapse locally and should be differentially diagnosed from other mesenchymal tumors.

Published in the journal Medicine, the authors eport here a rare case of massive vulvar AAM in a 22-year-old woman with left labia majora mass with ulcer. The diagnosis “aggressive angiomyxoma of vulva” was based on clinicopathologic and immunohistochemical features.

A surgery with local excision of the mass was performed. The patient was discharged 12 days after the surgery. There was no AAM recurrence or metastasis in a period of 12-month follow-up.

Learning Point:-
- The vulvar AAM is a benign and aggressive mesenchymal tumor. In this case, we present the diagnosis, treatment, and prognosis for vulvar AAM.

- The tumor was removed completely by the surgery, but a long-term follow-up is requisite for surveilling on recurrence
