Aggressive angiomyxoma (AAM) is a rare soft tissue tumor composed of scattered spindle cells and abundant vessels embedded in a myxoid matrix. It is a benign slow growing tumor, but locally infiltrative and have a propensity of recurrence. We described the case of a recurrent aggressive angiomyxoma of vulva in a 47-year old female patient. She had a history of vulvar excision at local clinic 2-years ago, and visited our institute with a complaint of pain associated vulvar mass. Wide local excision with postoperative adjuvant GnRH agonist therapy was done according to pathologic report which revealed positive resection margin with estrogen/progesterone receptors positive. She is now free of disease during 15 months of follow up. We report the case with a brief review of the literature.
