Aggressive angiomyxoma (AAM) is a rare mesenchymal tumor that usually occurs in the pelvis and perineum of young females. AAM can simulate Bartholin's gland cyst, abscess, lipoma, simple labial cyst, or other pelvic soft tissue tumors. Here we present five cases of AAM with mean age of 42. The patients mainly presented slow-growing mass in the abdomen and perineum (3 cases in the pelvis, 1 in the vulva, and 1 in the buttock). Color Doppler flow imaging revealed blood flow for the 3 pelvic lesions. Enhanced computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging of the other 2 cases showed the typical "swirled" or "layered" structure characteristic...

BACKGROUND: A ranula is a cystic lesion in the floor of the mouth, formed either as a retention cyst or pseudocyst as a result of extravasation of mucus in the surrounding tissue. It may be treated by micro-marsupialization, marsupialization or excision of lesion with or without the associated salivary gland. Marsupialization is usually achieved by cutting a slit and thereafter stitching the edges such that the epithelium of the exterior becomes continuous with that of the interior of a cyst...

Aggressive angiomyxoma (AA) is a rare mesenchymal tumor that usually occurs in the pelvis and perineum of young females. AA can simulate Bartholin's gland cyst, abscess, lipoma, simple labial cyst, or other pelvic soft tissue tumors. Cross-sectional imaging, particularly magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), plays an essential role in the diagnosis and management of AA. We report a case of AA in a 38-year-old woman with typical MRI features. We also present the findings of a literature review on the radiological features of this disease...

BACKGROUND: Cystic lesions associated with the blockage of Bartholin gland ducts are frequently seen, but occurrence outside the normal vestibular localization is quite rare. CASE: A 16-year-old patient presented with a localized cystic lump approximately 4 cm in size on one of her labia minora. After an excision, she was diagnosed with an atypically localized Bartholin cyst. SUMMARY AND CONCLUSION: It is very difficult to make an early diagnosis for an atypically localized Bartholin cystic lesion in adolescence; it can be diagnosed only after a pathological examination...

Vulvar neoplasms represent four percent of all gynecological cancers. While most cases of vulvar neoplasms are benign, two percent of patients present with malignant disease. We present the case of a 37-year-old premenopausal female who presented to an outside institution with a lump in her left vulva, which had progressively enlarged to the size of an egg. A wide local excision of the left vulva was performed, and the pathology revealed a high-grade sarcoma, not otherwise specified (NOS), with negative margins...

Hidradenoma papilliferum is a benign cutaneous adnexal neoplasm, commonly occurring in the vulva and perianal region of adult women. It has characteristic histopathological features composed of anastomosing and branching tubules, lined by columnar cells, and a basal layer of myoepithelial cells. A 39-year-old woman was evaluated for 2 asymptomatic labial masses. The histopathological examination revealed a Bartholin's cyst and a hidradenoma papilliferum. The latter contains a distinct area of oncocytic/oxyphilic metaplasia...

Nodular fasciitis involving the vulva on physical examination can mimic a Bartholin gland lesion, and histologically can have overlapping features with more ominous mesenchymal pathologies. We describe a case in which a 52-year-old perimenopausal woman presents with a vulvar mass. After an initial biopsy and later excision, the myofibroblastic lesion was noted to have areas of differing cellularity, with compact nodule formations at the periphery. Immunohistochemical staining showed lesional cells to be positive for desmin, estrogen receptor, progesterone receptor, and smooth muscle actin, and negative for CD34, ALK-1, myogenin, caldesmon, S100, and wide spectrum (Oscar) cytokeratin...
