Abstract
Aggressive angiomyxoma is a rare pathological condition which affects mainly the soft tissues of the pelvis and perineum in women. It is circumscribed totally or partially and has a infiltrative margin, so it has a tendency for local recurrence. We report a 33-year-old woman who presented with a mass arising within the vaginal wall which was painless, soft and movable like a cyst on palpation. The mass was surgically excised and pathologically proved to be an aggressive angiomyxoma.
Key Words: Aggressive Angiomyxoma, Vagina
