Proximal epithelioid sarcoma of the vulva: A case report and review of the literature
Primary sarcomas of the vulva are rare, with an incidence of 1.5% to 5% of all vulvar malignancies. There are only 41 cases described in the English literature of proximal epithelioid sarcoma of the vulva, which also constitutes a highly aggressive neoplasm with a high rate of recurrence and metastasis. We are reporting the first case of vulvar epithelioid sarcoma reported in our country, Peru, and Latin America. We present the case of a 53-year-old woman with no significant history who presented a large tumor mass of 25 cm in the left hemivulva of 2 years of evolution, associated with intense pain. She underwent radical surgical resection with left inguinopelvic lymphadenectomy and reconstruction of Rectus Abdominal Muscle Myocutaneous Flaps (TRAM).
