Abstract

BACKGROUND: While observed on the vulva, basaloid squamous cell carcinoma (BC) of the vagina is extremely rare, with no reported cases. CASE: A 54-year-old, African American woman presented with carcinoma metastatic to both lungs, morphologically similar to her BC of the vagina four years previously. She was treated initially in 1995 with local excision. Reexcision and radiation therapy were given for a recurrence in 1996. CONCLUSION: BC of the vagina is an extremely rare and aggressive tumor, which can recur and metastasize.
