Cellular angiofibroma is a benign growth initially described in 1997, with few reports to date. A 31-year-old woman presented with a 3-year history of a small left labial mass, which had recently increased in size to 5 cm, and was clinically thought to be a lipoma. A simple excision was performed. Histologically, the mass was consistent with a cellular angiofibroma. Ten months later, the growth has not recurred. Cellular angiofibroma is a rare, benign mesenchymal lesion typically Occurring on the Vulva, and should be considered in the differential diagnosis of a painless, soft, vulvar mass.
