Abstract

BACKGROUND: Aggressive angiomyxoma of the female perineum and pelvis is a slowly growing neoplasm occurring almost exclusively in women of reproductive age. The tumor is characterized by its locally infiltrative behavior. The high recurrence rate has been attributed to incomplete surgical excision. CASE: A case of a huge, recurrent, aggressive angiomyxoma of the perineum and pelvis was treated. CONCLUSION: Correct preoperative diagnosis and assessment of simultaneous perineal and pelvic involvement indicate a combined abdominoperineal surgical approach to achieve wide, tumor-free margins.
