The vast majority of malignant tumors involving the vagina are secondary spread from primary malignant lesion of the cervix uteri, the sigmoid colon, the bladder and the vulva. Primary invasive carcinoma of the vagina remains among the rare gynecologic malignant tumor. The diagnosis of primary carcinoma of the vagina requires that the cervix and the vulva be intact and no clinical evidence of other primary tumors exist. Greater than 80-90% of all vaginal tumors are squamous cell type. We experienced two cases of primary vaginal cancer of 68 years old woman without any other gynecologic disease and 67 years old woman after hysterectomy for benign desease. We presented these cases with a brief review of related literatures.
Key Words: Primary vaginal cancer, Squamous cell cancer
