Sofia Jayi: rf. This article has been cited by other articles in PMC. Abstract Introduction Vulvar lipoma is a rare tumor localization and only a few cases have been reported. The clinical characteristics of vulvar lipoma are well known. However, it is important to distinguish lipomas from liposarcomas. We report a case of vulvar lipoma and discuss its clinical features, including diagnostic aspects, with emphasis on histopathological evaluation of all excised lesions.

We also report and discuss patient management and treatment outcomes. Case presentation We report the case of a year-old Moroccan woman. Our patient presented with a painless and slow-growing right vulvar mass that had evolved over one year, which had suddenly become uncomfortable when walking. A physical examination revealed a single soft and pasty mass in her left labium majus, which could be mobilized under her skin towards her mons pubis.

The largest dimension of the mass measured 6cm. Magnetic resonance imaging showed a homogenous hyperintense mass with a well-defined contour in her left labium majus; a fat-suppressed magnetic resonance image demonstrated a marked signal intensity decrease. The mass was completely removed surgically. A histological examination revealed a circumscribed benign tumor composed of mature adipocytes, confirming the diagnosis of vulvar lipoma. Conclusion Vulvar lipomas must be differentiated from liposarcomas, which demonstrate very similar clinical and imaging profiles.

The final diagnosis should be based on histopathological evaluation. A precise diagnosis should allow for appropriate surgical treatment.

Keywords: Diagnosis, Lipoma, Surgical excision, Vulva Introduction Lipomas are widely disseminated benign mesenchymal neoplasms commonly found over the neck and upper back, shoulders, abdomen, buttocks, and proximal portions of the extremities [ 1 ].

Vulva localizations are rare, and very few cases have been reported [ 2 , 3 ]. In this paper, we report the case of a vulvar lipoma that was diagnosed in a year-old woman. We discuss the clinical features and management options of this pathology with emphasis on the histopathological evaluation of all excised lesions. A review of the literature is also presented. Case presentation We report the case of a year-old Moroccan woman, who presented with a painless and slow-growing right vulvar mass that evolved over one year.

Our patient reported a sudden, uncomfortable feeling during walking. A physical examination revealed a single soft and pasty mass in her left labium majus. The mass could be mobilized under her skin towards her mons pubis.

However, there was no visible palpable cough impulse or inguinal lymphadenopathy, while a physical pelvic examination was normal. Fat-suppressed MRI demonstrated a marked decrease in the mass signal intensity. Surgery allowed complete mass removal. A histologic study of the tumor slices showed lobulated yellow tissue without hemorrhage or necrosis.

Lipoma of Vulva

Alexander T. Odoi E-mail: moc. Summary Vulvar lipoma is said to be so rare that only a few cases have been reported. We present two cases of vulvar lipoma that were diagnosed within six months in our centre in a 28 year-old para 2 and 35 year-old para 1 woman both of whom presented with slow-growing masses in the vulva.
