Özet

Angiokeratomas of the vulva are uncommon, benign vascular lesions that are generally located on the labia. However, the clitoris is an extremely rare location, with only three published cases. We report a case of clitoral angiokeratoma in a 22-year-old nulligravida with a history of surgery to remove a clitoral mass at 6 years of age. The case described herein is distinguished from the other case reports by an accompanying varicose structure involving the vulva.
