A 56-year-old woman, previously treated for breast cancer, presented to gynecologists with a lump of the left labium major of the vulva. The FDG pattern resembled as a cIV stage vulvar cancer, whereas biopsy indicated metastases from breast cancer. Metastatic disease to the vulva is particularly uncommon, representing 5% to 8% of all vulvar cancer lesions. However, gynecological uptakes, including vulvar site, have to be kept in mind as a possible site of metastatic lesions from breast cancer.
