VICENTE DE LA CRUZ, Asbel Alfredo; VICENTE MEDINA, Maribel Lissette  and  DE LA CONCEPCION DE LA PENA, Ada Hilda. Vulvar tumor, total vulvectomy. Rev Cubana Cir [online]. 2011, vol.50, n.3, pp.358-362. ISSN 0034-7493.

The vulvar tumors are not uncommon among the different types of cancer involving females, but neither are the more frequent ones. This is the case of a female aged 59 that in 2000 is diagnosed with epidermoid carcinoma of clitoris, in 2004 is re-operated on by tumor relapse, and in 2009 she came again to our consultation and a vulvectomy, vagina resection and all gynecological system are carried out. Intervention concluded with an extraperitoneal vesical cutting. The tumor extends up to the initial portion of vagina and urethra. It is a malignant and well-differentiated tumor behaved in non habitual way with local relapses, when apparently the tumor was resected in all its extent, and in this last change, despite and advanced stage, there were neither tumor metastases nor multi-centralization. The postoperative course was free of complications receiving the discharge at fifth day.

Keywords : vulva; cancer; vagina; clitoris.
