This article was originally published by Wolters Kluwer - Medknow and was migrated to Scientific Scholar after the change of Publisher.
Vulvar Paget's disease is an extremely rare neoplasm that accounts for less than 1% of vulvar malignancies. We present a case of a 66 year old woman, who had an ulcerated lesion involving the labia majora bilaterally; lymph nodes were not palpable in the inguinal region bilaterally. A biopsy of the Vulva showed Paget's disease. She underwent radical Vulvectomy with Bilateral inguinal lymph node dissection. The specimens resected were reviewed with respect to involvement of the margins with Paget cells and the margin was negative. The patient remained disease free at 2 years follow up.
