The primary vaginal cancer is rare, accounting for approximately 2-3% of all gynecologic malignancies. The most common site is in the upper one-third on posterior wall and squamous cell carcinomas is the most common pathologic type, occurring in 80% of the vaginal cancers. The most common syrnptoms are painless vaginal bleeding and vaginal discharge. Treatment selection is based on the clinical exa#rnination and most tumors are treated by radiation therapy. We have experienced one case of the primary vaginal cancer in a 51 year old, who had postcoital bleeding. The patient was managed with neoadjuvant chemotherapy, there-after operated, followed radiation therapy. We report the result with the review of literature.
