This diagnosis should prompt further clinical study of the immune status of the patient. The syndromic management of genital ulcers is recommended as an initial treatment, given the number of differential diagnoses and the practical difficulties in establishing a clear-cut etiologic diagnosis. Vulvar condylomas and squamous vestibular micropapilloma. Horbelt, D, Delmore, J, Glob. The pyogenic granuloma hemangoima the vulva is a rare finding and a limited number of case reports are available in the literature.

Vulvar Hemangioma: Case Report

Grossly, they present as multiple, white or gray, vascular nodules with epithelial thickening. Histologically, increased numbers of melanocytes and dermal melanophages are present.

The patient reported a genital lesion for the past 3 years and the use of various treatments involving creams and ointments, even though there was no diagnosis associated with dyspareunia and intermittent bleeding. It is important to highlight that during this period, the biopsy was suggested and refused by the patient, who accepted it only upon knowledge that it could be a malignant neoplasm.


Recently, there were reports of the use of a new topical treatment option, timolol, apparently with minimal adverse effects, easy administration, and good cosmetic outcomes [ 1112 ].

The affected areas may be asymptomatic or excoriated from hemsngioma. How to cite this article. Vulvar melanosis is a lesion that is larger than lentigo and has an irregular border. Am J Surg Pathol Management is incision and drainage, with or without marsupialization.

To the best of our knowledge this is the first case described as a single pyogenic granuloma on the vulva. Some epithelial cells exhibit atypical nuclei and perinuclear halos that are believed to be a manifestation of HPV hemangiioma. VIN lesions are sufficiently atypical to be considered premalignant.

Case Reports in Obstetrics and Gynecology. Vulvar Intraepithelial Neoplasia Vulvar intraepithelial neoplasia is a hyperplastic squamous lesion with atypia that is confined to the epithelium.

It has been considered to be a reactive hyperproliferative vascular response to a variety of stimuli, more than a true hemangioma [ 134 ].

Complications of infantile hemangiomas. Hemajgioma induces apoptosis and inhibits proliferation in infantile hemangioma endothelial cells via downregulation of MCL-1 and HIF-1a. Histologically, hemanfioma glands and stroma with extensive hemosiderin deposition are identified. The two major categories hemanfioma vulvar lesions are tumors of epithelial origin and tumors of mesenchymal origin. Lymphangioma circumscription of the vulva: They may become large and produce symptoms Fig.


They are small, flesh-colored, pedunculated lesions on the labia that develop after puberty. Carcinoma in situ showing epithelial atypia throughout the epithelial layer. HPV 2, the virus associated with common epithelial warts, also is seen in the squamous epithelium of the vulva.

The lesions are firm and freely movable. Absence of a muscular layer around the vascular structures further distinguishes these lesions from hemangiomas Fig. However, no final diagnostic was obtained, and no vu,var results were observed.

Histologic evaluation of the melanocytes for atypical architecture and cytologic changes distinguishes pigmented nevi from melanoma.

Benign pigmented lesions are classified as lentigines, vulvar melanosis, and nevi. Management consists of wide excision of the tumor with adequate margins.

Treatment consists of local excision. Hemangioma of the ovary-a case report and review of literature.

Therefore, our approach was to initially screen the patient for STDs; these all proved to be negative, which excluded these diseases from our differential diagnoses.
