A 17-year-old unmarried female presented with asymptomatic painless swelling over left side of vulva for three months. Initially small, it gradually progressed to the present size with no spontaneous bleeding or oozing. There were no constitutional symptoms. There was no history of tuberculosis, sexual contact, trauma or abdominal/genital surgery.
On examination, there was pedenculated, convoluted, flesh colored, smooth and non warty mass, with stalk length of approximately 10cm and globular mass of 3x3 cm, hanging from left side of labia majora. It was firm, non tender and local temperature over swelling was not raised. There was serosanginous discharge on puncturing it. There was no evidence of inguinal lymphadenopathy. There was no edema of lower extremities and vulva. No abnormality was detected in perianal region.
Routine investigations like hemogram, Chest X ray, USG abdomen, ELISA for HIV, VDRL, TPHA were normal. As there was no apparent cause of lesion, excision biopsy was done and it was subjected to histopathological examination.
