Angiomyxoma is a rare tumor developing from myxoid cells. There are two types of angiomyxomas, superficial - which grows near the surface and aggressive - which involves the deeper structures. A 15-year-old unmarried girl presented with an asymptomatic mass on the genitalia of 3 years duration. Her general and systemic examination was within normal limits. Patient was referred to Urology Department where the mass was excised and was sent for histopathological examination, which clinched the diagnosis of superficial angiomyxoma. The patient is kept under follow-up. This case is a typical example which highlights the role of STD department in diagnosing, treating, and reassuring the patient with a nonvenereal disease, causing apprehension.
