Angiomyofibroblastoma is a benign, distinctive, and rare soft tissue tumor of vulva and vagina that might be mistaken for aggressive angiomyxoma. It is suggested that angiomyofibroblastoma is slow-growing in nature and consistent with the benign clinical course reported in the literatures. 21-year-old woman complained of lower abdominal pain and odorous vaginal discharge. She had a large paravaginal mass obliterating vaginal canal. It was maybe absent 3 months ago, but it was occupied in paravesical space later. It revealed angiomyofibroblastoma, which rapid grew and located in vagina. It was removed by vaginal approach. This report describes a case of angiomyofibroblastoma in paravaginal space characterized by rapid growth.
