Abstract

Vulvar Abrikossoff’s Tumour:Case Report and Review of the Literature

Abrikossoff’s or granular cell tumours (GCTs) are rare neoplasms, probably neurogenic in its origins. Vulvar involvement is uncommon and most are benign. Case report: A 63 year-old woman presented with a progressive growing vulvar tumour, localized in the left labium majus, noticed 4 years before. No concomitant lesions were found. Biopsy revealed a benign GCT and surgical wide excision was performed. Fresh frozen section showed disease-free surgical margins. To date,there was no evidence of recurrence.
