Abstract

Aggressive angiomyxoma (AAM) is an uncommon mesenchymal tumor that predominantly involves the pelvis and perineum of young females. It is often clinically mistaken for more common superficial lesions such as vaginal cysts, labial cysts, and lipomas. A review of the medical literature reveals very few cases of AAM reported in pregnancy. We describe a rare case of AAM in pregnancy, clinically misdiagnosed as prolapsed cervical fibroid.

KEYWORDS:
