Cellular angiofibroma of the vulva. A case study report


A rare case of cellular angiofibroma of the vulva in a 51-ys-old woman is presented. It was a 1.5 cm tumour of the right maior labium. Histological and immunohistochemical findings were similar to those described previ­ously. The tumour cells expressed vimentin, CD99, estrogen and progesterone receptor. They were negative for EMA, desmin, h-caldesmon, S100 protein, CD34, CD10, and bcl-2. Besides the case presentation, differential di­agnosis and histogenesis of angiomyxoid lesions of the lower genital tract is discussed, and a brief overview of the literature is added.
