Rare case of advanced carcinoma vagina in young
Shannon Fernandes, Sujaya V. Rao
Diagnosis of primary vaginal carcinoma is rare because most lesions are secondary. Vaginal carcinoma is common in the post-menopausal group; however, an increasing incidence among younger women is reported, especially in HIV prevalent areas. A suspicious case should be confirmed histologically with a biopsy. Treatment should be individualised depending on the stage of the disease. Here, we are presenting a case of advanced vaginal carcinoma in a young woman.
