Angiomyofibroblastoma is a soft tissue tumor that often occurs in the vulvar region of premenopausal women.

It is important that angiomyofibroblastoma distinguish from aggressive angiomyxoma and myxofibrosarcoma. This study presents a rare case of angiomyofibroblastoma of the vagina in a 36 year old woman.

Histologic examination shows angiomyofibroblastoma. Also, in this patient no systematic or local recurrence was reported after 84 months (7 years) of tumor simple removal. Conclusion: It is important that this neoplasm may occur extra vulvar region and before middle-age and tumor simple removal is the curative treatment.
