Angiomyofibroblastoma is an uncommon mesenchymal tumor and was first described by Fletcher as a well-circumscribed, benign subcutaneous vulvovaginal tumor. The tumor occurs mainly, but not exclusively, in the vulva of premenopausal women. It can also arise in other sites such as perineum, inguinal area, fallopian tube, vaginal portion of cervix and vagina in females and scrotum in males. The importance of this entity is related to its potential mimicry of a more infiltrative and prognostically less favorable lesion found in the same anatomic area, namely aggressive angiomyxoma. The occurrence of angiomyofibroblastoma is uncommon and its vaginal presentation is exceedingly rare. We experienced a case of vaginal angiomyofibroblastoma in a 50-year-old female and present it with a review of literatures.
