Vulvar leiomyosarcoma in pregnancy.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

To our knowledge, this is the first case of vulvar leiomyosarcoma occurring during pregnancy to be reported. The neoplasm was resected immediately after a term vaginal delivery.

The need to perform biopsy of vulvar lesions during pregnancy is emphasized.
