Abstract

Verrucous carcinoma of the vulva is a rare subtype of squamous cell cancer and tends to appear as a slowly growing wart with good overall prognosis. Most commonly affects elderly, postmenopausal women. Here, we present a case concerning an 85 years old postmenopausal woman on follow up after punch biopsy suggesting Bowenoid papulosis of the vulva. The treatment decided was only surgical. A review of the literature shows the rarity of this lesion of the female genital tract.
