Abstract

Endometriosis is a benign gynecological disorder that is characterized by the presence of ectopic endometrium outside the uterus. Endometriosis can be found in atypical locations both within and outside the pelvis. This disease mainly occurs during the reproductive years and is rarely diagnosed after menopause. Vulvar involvement of endometriosis is a rare condition, especially when not associated with local previous trauma (e.g. episiotomies) and in postmenopausal women. We present a case of a 46-years old woman who presented with vulvar lump that was surgically removed and later diagnosed with vulvar endometriosis.
