Abstract

Vulvar neoplasias are rarely encountered lesions at female genital tract, regardless if they are primary or metastatic. Presence of signet ring cells in a tumour at female genito-urinary tract is highly suggestive of a metastatic lesion particularly from a gastrointestinal tumour. Here the authors present a case of vulvar carcinoma with signet ring cells with an undetermined primary site possibly originating from embryonic cloaca.
