Review Articles

Mesenchymal lesions of the vulva may be either regionally specific to the vulva or soft tissue neoplasms that can occur in multiple locations on the body. They may have overlapping histological and immunohistochemical features and, in routine practice, are not likely to be encountered, adding to the diagnostic difficulty. A review of mesenchymal vulvar lesions is presented.

A review of an uncommon category of vulvar lesions, mesenchymal lesions, is provided.
