Abstract
Primary sarcomas of the vulva constitute an unusual groups of neoplasm. Peripheral nerve sheath tumor (Schwannoma) is arising from schwann cell of the neuroectodermal origin. This tumor arises on the cranial and spinal nerve roots, as well as on the course of the peripheral nerves rarely. In most cases this tumor is solitary but be multiple in Von Recklinghausen's disease. This initial treatment of this unusual tumor should be radical excision of the primary. Regional lymphadenectomy probably is not useful, since metastases are generally hematogenous rather than lymphatics. Radiation is ineffective as primary therapy
Key Words: peripheral nerve sheath tumor (schwannoma), sarcoma, vulva
