Several histopathologic variants of cellular blue nevi have been described. The angiomatoid variant is characterized by a vascular component, and is considered to be a rare variant. Few studies have explored the influence of pregnancy on melanocytic lesions.
Hemangioma is a benign neoplasm that may affect the vulva, and it can cause functional or emotional disability. This article reports the case of a year-old female patient with a history of a genital ulcer for the past 3 years and who had undergone various treatments with creams and ointments. The patient was biopsied and diagnosed with vulvar hemangioma and was subsequently submitted to surgical excision of the lesion.
These cases are discussed, along with 9 previously reported cases with similar findings. We propose the acronym PELVIS syndrome to emphasize the characteristic findings of this syndrome: perineal hemangioma, external genitalia malformations, lipomyelomeningocele, vesicorenal abnormalities, imperforate anus, and skin tag. Hemangiomas are generally benign vascular anomalies that are rarely associated with systemic malformations.
Cavernous hemangiomas rarely involve the female genital tract. It is difficult to identify vascular malformations when these lesions are concealed in the vagina or deep vulva area. We present a rare case of vaginal cavernous hemangioma in a year-old primiparous woman with an early severe postpartum hemorrhage PPH and delayed continuous bleeding from the episiotomy site. She was treated successfully with transarterial embolization of the left vaginal artery.
