OCHOA CARRILLO, Francisco Javier; HERNANDEZ AMADOR, José Fernando; CAZARES ROBLES, Tania Karina  y  MARTINEZ LOPEZ, Adriana Cecilia. Angiomyofibroblastoma as a cause of transvaginal bleeding. Acta méd. Grupo Ángeles [online]. 2020, vol.18, n.2, pp.188-190.  Epub 28-Mar-2022. ISSN 1870-7203.

The angiomyofibroblastoma is a low incidence entity that belongs to the stromal tumours of the female reproductive system, the most frequent location is the vulvar one. Even when it has a favorable prognosis, it represents a diagnostic challenge due to the lack of consensus criteria and the variety of histological data and immunohistochemical markers. We report the case of a surgical postmenopausal patient attending emergency room for postcoital bleeding and hemodynamic instability, with an evident hyperintense vaginal cuff tumor on the T2 magnetic resonance. Being treated with surgical resection, with adequate clinical evolution. Vaginal localization of angiomyofibroblastoma is unusual, with just 7 cases reported till 2004 by Kaberi.

Palabras llave : Vaginal angiomyofibroblastoma; transvaginal bleeding; tumorectomy; female genital tract stromal tumors.
