ABSTRACTIntroduction: carcinoma of the vulva is a rare cancer that is between 4 and 5 percent of all gynecologic cancers. The Pelvic exenteration offers one last chance to "cure" some patients with gynecological malignant neoplastic disease, advanced or recurrent. However, the morbidity of radical surgery is high complex.
Objetive: describe the clinical case of a patient studied and treated with a primary squamous cell carcinoma of the vulva.
Case presentation: we describe the clinical characteristics of the patient, the result of the complementary; initial staging, the therapeutic procedure, results of the histopathological study, the postoperative staging, postoperative course, and follow-up data.
Conclusions: postoperative results are satisfactory at 3 years follow-up, there was a single complication: edema of both lower in the first year after the surgery that evolved properly. Currently holds satisfactory for vaginal sex.
