Vaginal Polypoidal Endometriosis Masquedering Malignancy in a Young Female


Shailja Puri Wahal and Kavita Mardi

Endometriosis is ectopic presence of endometrial glands surrounded by endometrial stroma. Polypoidal endometriosis is a recently described entity which mimics neoplastic growth. Grossly and microscopically, polypoidal endometriosis can mimic benign and malignant tumors like adenofibroma, adenomyoma, low-grade stromal sarcoma, endometrial carcinoma and adenosarcoma. We report this case of polypoidal endometriosis of vagina which clinically mimicked an embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma. We present this case due to its rarity and to consider this entity as one of the possibilities of vaginal growths.
