Özet

Aggressive angiomyxoma is an uncommon soft tissue tumor which preferentially involves pelvic and vulvoperineal regions of young adult females. The typical characteristics include gelatinous appearance and locally infiltrative nature without evidence of nuclear atypia or mitosis. Treatment involves surgery, but local recurrence is high in spite of apparently complete surgical resection.
