Purpose: Vaginal cancer is a rare primary vaginal carcinoma. It accounts for only 1% to 2% of all gynecological malignancies. They arise as primary squamous cell cancers or as a result of extension from the cervix or vulva. Primary mucinous vaginal adenocarcinoma of intestinal-type is of an unknown histogenesis. Methods and Materials: This report presents a case of a 29-year-old Para 0 woman with the complaint of a mass in the vagina and recurrent vaginal bleeding. She was evaluated and worked-up for examination under anesthesia and biopsy of the vaginal mass. Results: The histological examination confirmed an intestinal-type variant of adenocarcinoma of the vagina.
Conclusion: Recognition of this rare entity is important, particularly to avoid the pitfall of misdiagnosing metastatic disease as primary vaginal cancer.
