Aggressive angiomyxoma is a rare locally aggressive mesenchymal tumor of unknown etiology usually affecting the vulva, perianal region, buttocks or pelvis of reproductive age women.


A series of three cases, one each of vaginal, vulval and labial angiomyxoma is being presented. The etiology, presentation, diagnosis and management of this rare genital tumor are outlined.


Angiomyxoma of vulva and vagina refers to a rare disease; diagnosis is not at all clinical, thus, cases presenting as bartholin cyst, benign vulval lesions and vaginal wall cysts should have complete radiological work up before excision, as pre-diagnosis can change the treatment modality and prognosis of patient.
