Acquired Abnormalities

Rhabdomyosarcoma of the vagina or sarcoma bot-ryoides has the typical presentation of a lobulated, grapelike mass protruding from the introitus, and occurs only rarely in girls over the age of 8 years [10]. The mass is irritating and there is a bloody discharge present. The tumor begins in the subepithelial layer and can expand rapidly and be multicentric. In the past, these tumors have been treated with radical pelvic exenteration. A less mutilating approach involving chemotherapy and local resection is now used. In rare cases, patients may not respond completely to chemotherapy and may require complete vaginal resection and hysterectomy. In one report of 17 females, surgical cure was achieved in 15 with subsequent successful menses and conception in a few [11]. When resection results in a cure, the vagina can be reconstructed at or after puberty with a colovaginoplasty.
