In 2006, a 36-year-old Burmese woman presented with prolonged vaginal bleeding. She had undergone pelvic examination that disclosed pedunculated polypoid vaginal mass. It originated from the posterior vaginal wall. Local excision was done, resulting in good condition. Pathological diagnosis was angiomyofibroblastoma. Angiomyofibroblastoma is a rare, benign non-recurring lesion, mesenchymal tumor occurring mainly in the vulval region of premenopausal women and local excision with clear margins is an adequate treatment.
