Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The case of a 65-year-old female patient who has had a large right vulval mass for over 30 years is reported here. The mass was excised, but the hypocellular mesenchymal tumour was difficult to classify histologically. On further specialist assessment, it was found to be identical to the recently recognised distinctive prepubertal vulval fibroma. These are very rarely reported in children, and till now, has never been reported in an adult.
