Abstract
We present a case of a postmenopausal female who visited her doctor for a slowly growing mass in the vulval region. The mass did not show typical clinical features of a vulval neoplasm. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) revealed a mass arising from the undersurface of the symphysis pubis. A literature review revealed characteristics of this lesion compatible with a subpubic cartilaginous cyst—a rare benign degenerative condition of the symphysis pubis. As a result the mass was managed non-operatively and the patient remains well 2 years later. This article highlights the role of MRI in the diagnosis of this unusual vulval mass.....
