A case of aggressive angiomyxoma in a 38-year-old pregnant woman is described. These clinicopathologically distinctive soft tissue tumors comprise a quite rare entity. They are usually located in the pelvic or perineal soft parts and occur predominantly inwomen. On gross inspection, these lesions are typically soft bulky masses, frequently with a mulilobulated contour and of gelati-nous appearance. They are characterized by slow growth. infiltration of adjacent structures, absence of ditant metastases and a tendency to recur locally, probably secondary to incomplete excision. Therefore, treatment should consist of wide surical excision, ascomplete as technically possible. This is the second case of aggressive angiomyxoma of the pelvis occurring in a pregnant woman.
