Abstract
Aggressive angiomyxomas (AAMs) are rare, benign, but locally aggressive, hypocellular soft tissue neoplasms found in the vulvovaginal region. AAMs are most commonly found in women in their reproductive years. Only about 150 cases of this rare, soft tissue tumor have been reported thus far, most of which are reported from the gynecologic, obstetric, urologic, and pathologic fields. AAMs are considered to be a slow-growing mesenchymal tumor with a locally infiltrative growth pattern. There are only two reports of metastasic disease. We have managed a case of AAM which occurred during adolescence and was pathologically-confirmed.
Key Words: Aggressive angiomyxoma, Adolescence
