Vulvar epithelioid hemangioendothelioma as primary site is extremely rare tumor that may be confused with other mesenchymal tumors due to their rarity and its histologic features. We report a case of 46-year-old woman who presented to hospital with left vulvar mass. The mass was located in subcutaneous area of vulva, and well marginated contrast enhanced on radiologic examination. Local excision was performed. After surgery, she has remained free of disease without recurrence for 6 months. Here we report a case of primary vulvar epithelioid hemangioendothelioma as very rare site and this is the first case in Korea.
Key Words: Epithelioid hemangioendothelioma, Vulvar neoplasm, Sarcoma
