Huge Vulvar Lipoma and Uterine Fibroid: Concomitant female genital Mesenchymal Lesions at Different Sites
- 62 Downloads
Lipoma is the most second common mesenchymal tumor in the vulva. It is rarely seen at the Gynecological clinic. The site and its painless nature delay presentation. Surgical excision and cosmetic approximation of the skin is the treatment of choice.
We present a case of asymptomatic huge vulval lipoma in a 40-year-old woman with submucus uterine myoma.
Vulvar lipoma was excised with hysteroscopic resection of the myoma.
Uterine fibroids are common, and hysteroscopy is main treatment for cavitary ones. Recognition of this benign vulvar swelling is important to differentiate it from other swellings and malignant neoplasms in the vulva. Uterine fibroids and lipomas are mesenchymal tumors that can occur simultaneously at different sites.
