BACKGROUND: Aggressive deep angiomyxoma (AA) is locally infiltrative, non-metastasizing neoplasm that typically occurs in the pelvis and perineum in women of the reproductive age. Local recurrence is high despite apparently complete surgical resection.
CASE: The authors describe a case of AA in the pelvis in a 27-year-old woman. She underwent one invasive diagnostic procedure and three surgical interventions during four months, due to diagnostic problems and very early recurrence of the disease. Follow-up one year later revealed no recurrence.
CONCLUSION: The present case confirms that AA are locally aggressive and notorious for local recurrence. Such an early recurrence of AA has not been described in available literature.
